Thousands of high school and college students are excited and inspired by the extraordinary young men and women that generate drum corps performances every night from mid-June through early August. The incredible performances that Drum Corps International's corps achieve today are a direct result of thousands of music educators and their commitment to enrich the lives of young people through music and pageantry. Drum Corps International would like to recognize these educators, students, boosters and administrators that have made a commitment to excellence on and off the football field, parade route and classroom. The schools that participate in the Drum Corps International Commitment to Excellence program have proven their willingness to go beyond the ordinary. If you would like to add your school or band program to this list, please ask your band director or music teacher to send E-mail to with contact information and a brief description of how they use drum corps as an example of excellence.
