Mr. Rogers is in charge of all bands at WLC. He is the head honcho...the big cheese...the big kahuna...the buck stops with him. email@example.com Nick Pourcho is the assistant director of the marching band, is in charge of the percussion section and is the director of WLP. Jeffrey Cash is in charge of the color guard section and is the director of the WL Winter Guard. In addition, you may hear your child talk about a number of other instructors who are on staff during the marching band season. Part of your child's dues goes to pay for these excellent instructors.
Drum Majors a.k.a. Command Personnela.k.a. Field Commanders are the ones who "direct" the marching band on the field. They are senior (and sometime junior) band members and are responsible for making sure the band members are ready to go and are prepared for practice. They are chosen by and report to Mr. Rogers.
Section Leaders are student band members responsible for the students in their section. Basically, each type of instrument is a "section" and has its own section leader, voted in by sophomore/junior/senior members of that section. The section leaders are responsible for making sure the students in their section know the music and the marching, and they report to the drum majors. The color guard is a section and is part of the marching band. They are chosen by popular vote of the section members.
Squad Leaders are student band members who are responsible for assisting the section leaders in leading their section. They are chosen by popular vote of the section members.
