Under the direction of marching band staff, squad leaders, and qualified band upperclassmen, students will learn the music and marching fundamentals used by The Ohio State University Marching Band in a safe, positive, fun, and interactive environment. We especially encourage out-of-town students to join us to learn the skills and knowledge needed to try out for The Ohio State University Marching Band.
All activities will take place at the Steinbrenner Band Center in the Ohio Stadium, as well as on the marching band’s practice field at the south end of the stadium.
