The Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps is a top-notch youth organization. I was a member in 1998 and also a staff member in 2000 and 2001. This musical group gave me the opportunity to travel across North America competing against the best the marching activity has to offer. I made friendships that last a lifetime, had the most wonderful experiences performing, and learned so much about myself, in addition to the musical training. I would encourage anyone that cares about giving youth a positive, growth experience to invest their time and money in this organization. As a music teacher I have sent many of my students to this drum and bugle corps.
