The problem which has been chosen as the basis for this study is the training of the school drum major and a critical analysis of the methods and published materials to aid in this training. There are many aspects to the recruitment and training of a school band that are not in the province of the drum major. This study, however, will be limited to the elements of the marching band which are totally or partially within the jurisdiction of the drum major, his preparation to perform them adequately, and com- parison and evaluation where differences in methods occur.
