Cuts of written material
Jonathan Martin Music is proud to provide Drill Design as an optional add-on to any show purchase. Pricing is based on number of marching performers (hornline, battery percussion, guard members, and any moving props). Pricing can be viewed HERE.
Jonathan's unique coupling of theatrical movement and instrumental pedagogy unite to create hornline movement & choreography rooted in technique and visual effectiveness. Hornline Movement/Choreography instructional videos are available as an add-on to any show for $100. The choreography pairs strategically with our Drill Design add-ons, but is effective and useful for any group's design process.
Color Guard Choreography
Our team at Jonathan Martin Music has created a Guard Choreography resource that is rooted in dance technique and integrates the Guard movement with the optional Hornline Movement/Choreography add-on. This resource is especially helpful for groups who may not have a full-time guard designer/instructor as the movement videos are accessible on any digital device by your students or staff members. This effective resource is available as an add-on to any show for $300.
