JOINING THE APSU "GOVERNORS OWN" MARCHING BAND!!
The APSU Marching Band is open to ALL APSU students, regardless of major or full/part time student status. In fact, about 65% of the APSU Marching Band are not music majors! We perform at all home games, exhibition performances at area high school competitions and a few other events throughout the fall semester. To start your journey with the APSU GOMB Band, email the band director Mr. John Schnettler at email@example.com with your name, instrument, intended major and the year you will begin attending APSU.
MARCHING BAND TIME COMMITMENT (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 pm - 5:45 pm and performs on about 8 of the 16 Saturdays during the Fall semester. The week before fall semester classes begin, students are required to attend GOMB Band Camp each day, Sunday through Saturday, to include all day rehearsals on the APSU campus.
MARCHING BAND SCHOLARSHIPS: APSU GOMB is proud to offer scholarships to all of our members.
