Fine Art Directors, Band Program Directors and Drumline/Fall Band Program Directors

Good morning,

How exciting that a new year has already started and we are getting ready to have our Drumline and Fall Band Championships!

Our championships this year return to the Waco ISD Athletic Complex on Monday, October 24.  Championship information can be found on the Drumline / Fall Band Championship pages on the TAPPS website. Schedules will be forthcoming after registration is completed.

Exciting news! We have added another Tier to this year’s Drumline competition, a Junior High Drumline. If you have a group where the majority is junior high students, you may enter them this year.  They will perform, have a clinic, and be given awards just like the other tiers, but their scores will not count toward the Henderson Cup.

Below is the link for registration.  If you are planning on participating, Please complete the form shown below by the entry deadline, Friday, October 7.  The earlier you enter the competition, the faster we can create and publish the schedules.

If you have any questions, please contact me at the office at 254-947-9268 or by email.
