My few years with this organization has been nothing short of exemplary. The staff is sincerely in their pursuit of furthering music education, they are professional in their approach and decorum and the opportunities I and my students have been given to advance our musical education and career have been plentiful and mutually beneficial to me, my students and the organization.

I think any changes I would make are already being made. My concern is the large amount of paper that goes into the registration and adjudication of groups throughout the season, but big steps have already been taken to eliminate paper and streamline the process.

I have been associated with the American Drum Line Association since it's inception, as a school director, instructor, past board member and adjudicator. This grass roots organization has succeeded in continuing to serve the local school and youth ensembles with quality performance opportunities, clinicians, and performance venues, even experiencing growth, in a very difficult economic climate. The state of the art of percussion in Southern California has improved tremendously over the last two decades, largely due to the efforts of the American Drum Line Association and similar organizations.

Raising the standards of percussion performance and participation in the arts in the Southern California area, as evidenced by the growth in number and the quality of percussion performing ensembles participating in the association's events. Many of the area's current instructors started their playing careers as performing members in ensembles participating in the American Drum Line Association. events.

Try to find more opportunities for collaboration between the music industry and the association that would allow the association to assist members in meeting the financial needs of entering competitive events.

I have been a member of this association for over 10 years. In addition, I have served this association in an adjudicator role for 5 years now. In my time with this association I only have positive things to say about the organization. In short this organization strives to provide positive educational experiences to students from all walks of life. The organization has provided my students with some of the most fulfilling experiences of their high school lives while participating in this organizations events.

American Drumline Association offers the students a healthy and rewarding place to share their art. Drumline is a young Fine Art and there are not many places where students are encouraged in such a new way. ADLA encourages this new art form. It is a competition but I have sat in the stands and talked with my students after performing and they just want other students to see their show and see the other shows. ADLA is supporting our students in a great way and is professional in their endeavor.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have taken my drumline to ADLA shows for many years.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more shows closer to Bakersfield and northern LA.
