Music Education majors are required to have three semesters of marching band completed before graduation. All other music majors (music performance, music therapy, theory/composition, etc.) are required to complete 2 semesters of marching band prior to graduation.
Students with physical limitations will need to formally request a waiver (include all medical documentation) to be excluded from marching.
Members are expected to be at all rehearsals, sectionals, and performances. Students will not be excused to attend other classes, work, teach lessons, attend weddings, or for any other personal business. Commitment to the ensemble is crucial for success of the Bearkat Marching Band.
