“While I am not an instructor, director or tech, I am a big fan of the entire marching arts universe and this course allowed me a peek into the mind of a genius. Scott Chandler has a way of explaining his creative processes in such a way even a layperson like myself can gain insights into the activity I would not otherwise have gleaned. The suggested activities led me down some YouTube rabbit holes to discover performances of some of the revered names in the activity and revisit others I had not viewed in years. Thanks to Tim for making the extraordinary effort in all the work compiling the information resulting in a course to be valued by pageantry arts personnel all across the activity.” – Chaz Waldrip
