The Hawkeye Drumline is one of the most visible and exciting sections of the Hawkeye Marching Band. Earning a spot in this group is only the beginning of an amazing journey throughout your time at the University of Iowa. The HMB Drumline marches snare drums, bass drums, quads, and cymbals. Membership in the HMB Drumline is by audition only. Auditionees will be judged on playing and marching ability, attendance, attitude, and work ethic.
In summer 2023, The HMB Drumline will offer three in-person clinics, in which prospective members are highly encouraged to participate. These clinics, as well as the audition, are held on campus. You will need drumsticks, a drum pad, and a metronome. If you do not have one of these items, please contact us ASAP and we will work with you to procure them.
Clinic #1: June 10, 2023 // 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT
Clinic #2: June 17, 2023 // 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT
