Hi. It's my first year of Marching Band, we started learning the drill and stuff about a month ago.

Does anyone have any tips on playing and marching? Like counting and stuff?

I don't care if you're 10 yards off of your set when the count is over, YOU DO NOT MOVE. YOU STAND THERE 10 YARDS FROM EVERYONE ELSE AND OWN IT.

I'm never sure of what count I'm on when I play and march. :c   
Thank you for the help everyone.~

Posture is key! People won't be impressed if you march like a sloth. Although, if you march like the supreme ruler of the world, you will look and sound beautiful.

Always look up at the director, Memorize you music, Practice your 8/5 stride, Play full make only one mistake (like Blow, play right note, and rhythm but don't mess them up all at once), left foot on odd counts, DON'T MOVE WHEN HALTED EVEN IF YOU'RE ON THE WRONG DOT, Have crisp horns down, always listen for commands (Band-ten hut, Mark-time hut etc.) don't talk back, make sure you have the right uniform, and don't be stupid

I'm a section leader of the drumline in my marching band, I'd say just remember to mark time well and to dut before your entrances in the music if it doesn't interfere with your instrument

Except when you play in 3/4 time, subject to change. Kid, just listen to the Doc, traverse, and if you can't play and march at the same time, then pretend to play and march with all the perfection your little freshman (or new kid) feet can dish out.
