What You Get?

Some of the top fife and drum musicians and teachers in New England serve as the educators of our corps. This has allowed us to develop a highly respected and widely sought after fife and drum program in just a few years. 

The Cost

This program is provided at no cost to participants. Uniforms, many instruments and accessories are loaned to active participants.

Lessons and beginner instruments are provided at no cost. It costs $2,500-$3,500 to train and equip a student to perform with the Corps. Financial provision comes to us through grants and generous
donations. The Corps also conducts Fund Raising events which include opportunities for participants to recoup personal out-of-pocket expenses (such as performance-level fifes and uniform hats).


Your Responsibilities

We believe that committed people are capable of doing great things and strive to impart this lesson to the next generation. 

We consider it vitally important that students practice and attend events. Active participation is important for the students’ personal growth and development in music and the program.

Who Can Join?

Our ranks are made up of young people between the ages of 8 and 18. 

No musical background is required.
