The support from our school and community is not only motivating but knowing that we have Mr. V  who truly believes in every single member of our drumline is mesmerizing.

Isabel Lorta, I'm in 9th grade and I play the snare. The reason I joined drumline was for many reasons. Mainly because I saw them when the went and performed at my school,mlk, and I just knew I had to be apart of drumline. The beat and the flow of it all really caught my attention. I never knew Grant had a drumline until they preformed and I went on YouTube to look them up. To my surprise I was fascinated with all that they did. So when I heard that there were try outs I went.

DRUMLINE is a big goal for me. It keeps you off the streets and it makes your family proud cause they see you doing something with your life.

So when I'm gone I want the future drummers to know DRUMLINE is something you can do with your life. You just have to be a great leader.
