A bit about our educational staff…
At Vegas Vanguard, we value character above all else. Our operation is a small one that has maintained itself by a labor of love for over 15 years and will continue to do so for 15 more! We believe in pedagogy founded in positivity that builds character through an “inside-out” learning experience. We believe in a philosophy of information over intimidation that places ownership on the tools our educators give the members to perform at the highest level possible.
While we do not lead the charge with a staggering cache of highly-accomplished marching artists, we are comprised of individuals with both education and performance acumen from the high school, collegiate and professional realms, individuals with years of commitment to Vegas Vanguard, and most of all, teachers with a students first mentality that foster personal growth and an awareness of values that transcend drumming and music.
If you feel that you fit this mold, please join us in providing more knowledge and inspiration to our community of young adults!
