Performers of DCI drum corps are beginning to report for spring training. Over the coming weeks, Dan Potter is taking us inside the 2016 pre-season with a series of reports.
In this edition of the Field Pass Podcast presented by Zildjian, Dan has important information about getting a performer's mind conditioned for the rigors of the summer tour. He encourages members and their parents to listen to this interview with Dr. Jake Levy, a psychologist with the Marching Music Health and Wellness Project.
