After World War I there was a surplus of instruments from the bands that played during the war. Because of this, more people could afford instruments and the African American …community could now play on many of these instruments and create their own music. In the long run this led to what we now call jazz.
A wind instrument is any instrument that uses air to be played. Examples of wind instruments in marching bands: clarinet, flute, saxophone, trumpet, tuba, trombone. Us…ually people don't march with double reed instruments such as the oboe and bassoon.
To march you must be a few things: . Able to keep time without rushing . Able to keep time without slowing . Able to keep time . Have some coordination Then you need to… learn how to march correctly if you do roll step then your heel of your lead foot hits on beats one and three. The heel of your off foot hits on 2 and 4. To roll step you have your heel hit and the other foot goes on its toe. Then your back foot (the one on its toe) goes in front and hits the ground heel first. Then your other foot is on its toe and so on. All the time you must be dressing to your line so you are in actual lines. Hope this helps.
Marching band- is where you march and play instruments. Concert band- you are seated in chairs playing instruments. Marching bands also do field shows and parades while t…hey play. These bands also include a color guard, who are people that spin flags This guy does NOT say the true difference. Marching band is 10000% different than concert band. You need 200x more air, to blow the sound to the audience (still having a good sound). Concert band's Mezzo Forte is waay quieter than marching, because concert.. It sounds prettier, its slower, sometimes can be faster, i guess. But marching would be like the incredibles song (from the movie). (That is what i am currently marching) and band people once you hit marching band grade level (high school and up) are crazy, we had one dude that looked just like frozone (in a way) started yelling to this girl (his friend obviously) saying "Where is my, SUPER, SUIT!?!? lol get into marching band, its fun, don't be intimidated by the looks, its easy. This is coming from a 9th grader, so don't say "BUT YOUR EXPERIENCED!" Not really, Just guide, and remember your music. My favorite part of football games (marching band plays for varsity football while they play. and at halftime.) is usually the stand music. The people that play the absolute most, is low brass and Drum line.
The marching band originated with travelling musicians who performed together at festivals and celebrations throughout the ancient world. It evolved and became more structured… within the armies of the early city-states, becoming the basis for the military band, from which the modern marching band emerged. As musicians became less important in directing the movement of troops on the battlefield, the bands moved into increasingly ceremonial roles - an intermediate stage which provided some of the instrumentation and music for marching bands was the modern brass band, which also evolved out of the military tradition..
All Military units have a band. It is a long standing tradition, using a theme song or a rallying song for war and for pride in the unit. The military bands are called upon to… play for dignitaries or many other events, where music is needed and appropriate. Ceremonies would not be the same without the music. They would be very dry and have less meaning. Many pieces played by military bands bring tears to your eyes, because of the great meaning to the tunes and also for the "pageantry" and pride, we as the audience feels when they are played well. The military bands work long hours to perform at a highly acceptable level of performance. Their individual careers and futures, depend on their abilities as a musician. They do it because of pride in their ability and corps.
OK Go did a song with a marching band called "This Too Shall Pass". Fleetwood Mac performed Tusk accompanied by the USC Marching Band.
Because of the difficulties in being able to bow across the strings while walking down a path. Besides, where would one place the lyre that holds the music? The violin is a…lso not a "band" instrument.
The three families of a marching band are Winds, Percussion, and Colorguard.

When you are standing at attention, your heels should be together, toes apart, with your chin up, and shoulders back. You always start marching on your left foot. Usually the …drums will give clicks, and when you hear them, your left foot should hit the ground. You always roll your feet, and stay at attention at all times. I hope this helped! Enjoy your marching! I sure do!
