Winter Sessions


Winter Sessions provide an opportunity for young twirlers and aspiring drum majors to receive instruction and coaching from OSUMB drum majors past and present.

The sessions are free and open to those in grades 8-12. In 2020, Winter Sessions will run on Mondays from Jan. 27 through April 6 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the French Field House (460 Woody Hayes Dr., Columbus OH 43210). Advanced registration is required.


If you are under 18, we ask that a parent or guardian also attend. Students should wear gym clothes and tennis shoes, and each student should ideally have his or her own Gray Baton. The drum majors may have extra batons on hand, but it is best if each student has his or her own. They can be purchased online.

If you wish to park at the French Field House, please use a Pay-by-Plate machine, or you will be ticketed. The Ohio State University Marching Band is not responsible for any parking fines that may be incurred.
