JOINING THE APSU "GOVERNORS OWN" MARCHING BAND!!

The APSU Marching Band is open to ALL APSU students, regardless of major or full/part time status.  In fact, about 65% of the APSU Marching Band are not music majors!   We perform at all home games, and a few other events throughout the semester.

2017 GOMB membership applications are now closed.

For other performance opportunities at APSU please contact Mr. Schnettler at schnettlerj@apsu.edu

GOMB Day 2017

On Saturday, November 18th, we invite ALL HIGH SCHOOL BAND STUDENTS to join us and become a member of the APSU 'Governors Own' Marching Band (GOMB) for a day!  We will learn a field show (including drill!) that morning, and perform on the field and in the stands at an APSU Home Football game.  Last year we had over 600 people involved - it's a GREAT DAY!!

Your registration fee of $25 includes: Shirt, Backback, Lunch, and Participant ticket.  After you are registered, Mr. Schnettler will send you a link to the Dropbox folder which has the music, schedule, and instructions.  After you register, PLEASE sign up for text alerts at this link.

You can register and pay online or you can print and mail this form, and include a check (no cash).  The DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS NOVEMBER 3rd.

We hope to see you with us!

MARCHING BAND TIME COMMITTMENT (ONLY 5.25 hours per week!)

It is VERY important to us that students have plenty of time for academics, job, family, etc.  Band is designed to be PART of your college experience, not ALL of it. The APSU Marching Band rehearses Mon/Wed/Fri from 4:00-5:45, and performs on about 8 of the 16 Saturdays during the Fall semester.  Also, one week before classes begin, students are required to attend "Band Camp" (all day rehearsals on-campus).  

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR ALL MEMBERS OF THE MARCHING BAND!

We are proud to award scholarship to ALL members of the APSU Marching Band, including our Color Guard members!  The scholarships are based on participation (not audition), and the amounts vary depending on the ensembles in which you perform.  For more information about scholarships, please contact Mr. Schnettler  schnettlerj@apsu.edu
