OVERVIEW & TEACHING PHILOSOPHY The Smith Walbridge Mace & Signal Baton Clinic is specialized for drum majors. Teaching focuses on showmanship, using a mace or various types of signal batons. Students are encouraged to develop their own style by adapting the fundamentals they learn at the workshop. Instructors demonstrate how this is accomplished. The workshop is ideal for both high school and college drum majors. A limited number of maces are available for purchase at the clinic. A limited number of practice maces may be reserved for check-out at the clinic.
