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 is closing soon!!

Email the Band Director, Mr. Schnettler at schnettlerj@apsu.edu with your name, instrument, major, and HS you are attending.  He will reply within 48 hours and you're on your way to becoming a member of the GOMB!!

BAND CAMP 2017

Percussion, Color Guard, & Leadership:  On-campus (dorm residents) will move in on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 15.  We will begin rehearsals the morning on Wednesday, August 16. 

Brass & Woodwinds:  Move in and begin rehearsals on Sunday, August 20.

All groups rehearse every day through an end-of-camp Performance at 6pm on Saturday, August 26th.  Then Sunday 8/27 is off, and classes begin Monday 8/28. 

*Eclipse note:  We will be cancelling rehearsal for a few hours on Monday 8/21 to give you time to enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime Solar Eclipse which will be coming directly through Clarskville!

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
