Thank you for your interest in becoming a part of TBDBITL!
All candidates that have not been members of the marching band in past years are required to attend “Candidate Training Days”. These days are meant to introduce new candidates to what will be expected during tryouts.
For additional practice, feel free to attend the optional rehearsals lead by veteran members of the band known as “Summer Sessions”. The full schedule can be found here, where percussion players start at 6:00pm and brass players begin at 7:00pm on the rehearsal field in front of Lincoln Tower.
If you are interested in becoming a member of The Ohio State University Marching Band but prefer not to register online, please write or call us and tell us who you are, where you live, and what instrument you play. Percussion players please specify an instrument (Snare, Quad-Toms, Bass Drum, or Cymbals).
