COLIN McNUTT

Colin McNutt is the Percussion Caption Supervisor and Arranger for the ten-time DCI World Champion Cadets Drum & Bugle Corps. Colin has a strong history in percussion instruction. He arranged music and instructed for the Star of Indiana of Bloomington, Ind., the Glassmen of Toledo, Ohio, and the Crossmen. He also took his talents to the stage, writing and teaching for the popular production "Blast!"

Colin has served on the faculty of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he is an alumnus and received degrees in Classics and Music Education. When not instructing drum corps, McNutt conducts clinics for the percussion companies Avedis Zildjian Co., REMO, Inc., and Vic Firth. He also writes music for marching bands in the United States and Japan.

There's nothing more fulfilling to Colin than running into former students who have made great lives for themselves. Knowing he could have played a small part in their success and happiness keeps this world-class educator motivated, sharing his talents and skills with young performers across the country.

The Lot. Any rudimental drummer knows to go there before the show to get up-close and personal with the performers who know how to dish it out.

Performed in 1993 by members of the world-champion Star of Indiana drumline, "Red's Rhumba" and the cadence, "Star '93" are your invitation to witness today's most complex beats in rudimental percussion.
