Drill Design

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

Hornline Movement/Choreography

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.
