TJHSST Winter Color Guard and Drum Line season has begun!

Welcome to the TJHSST Winter Program! We are excited for you to join our program. Both the Indoor Drum line and Indoor Color guard offer students a vast array of educational and social experiences. Students will learn how to work as a team, problem solve, persevere through challenges, and understand the value/reward of hard work.

Winter programs began as a training program for the fall marching band, but through the decades they have defined themselves as respected competitive activities throughout the world. If you have ever seen the marching band you have pretty much seen the activities in this winter program. The only difference is that during indoor, instead of being a part of the bigger picture, the focus is entirely on the drum line or color guard. To help enhance the visual interpretation of the music, both groups employ visual movements as well as props and backdrops.

These programs offer students the opportunity to perform a more individually customized show. They will have much more personal exposure and higher individual responsibilities and demands since there are fewer people on stage with them than in the marching band. This added focus on the individual adds an extra level of excitement and personal achievement to the activity. The educational value of this is obvious; confidence and self-expression become second nature.
