The Marching Thunder Percussion section, known as HerdBeats, consists of the battery and front ensemble. Membership is open to any student regardless of major and auditions are held in the spring each year. HerdBeats is under the direction of percussion coordinator, Chad Fink. Audition material will be available after paying for your audition fee during the spring semester and the cost will cover the materials and clinicians.

Spring Sectionals

During the spring semester, HerdBeats meets once a week to go over fundamentals and technique to prepare individuals for the audition and to keep the hands moving during the off-season. This is open to ALL Marshall students as well as any high school student wishing to better themselves! Date and time of rehearsals will be announced soon.
