We will have group auditions for the Snare, Tenor and Bass sections. Everyone auditioning for these sections will play together during their specified times. We’ll rotate people in and out on the line making sure everyone has a chance to play on the drum. Basses should be familiar with all parts. Everyone will rotate and possibly play all parts.
Cymbal auditions will be individual. Auditionees will need to clap thru a rhythm piece and display the ability to hold the cymbals properly. Saturday we will play together as a full line. We will continue to rotate people in and out. The line will be set after Lunch on Saturday. If you audition for one section, you may be placed in a different section based on audition results. You can audition for multiple sections.

About the Drumline
Here at the University of Hawai‘i we have a style that is all our own. Over the past 6 years we have distilled our sound to its current form, a highly groove-oriented drumline hell-bent on making the listener “nod their head.”
The drumline is here to cheer on our athletic teams with love, support and hot beats. We are the tip of the spear in terms of fan participation at sporting events, a conduit of fan energy to the players on the field. With our high-energy beats, we aim to galvanize the fans, cheerleaders, dancers and band into one voice cheering on Hawaii’s team.
WANT TO BE IN THE GAME?
As a member of the drumline, you are a part of the gameday experience!!! From pep rallies to the Tailgate Jams, Pregame, playing in the stands, cheering, halftime and the postgame jam, the drumline is an integral part of the gameday experience from beginning to end. People who come to the games are just spectators, the drumline is in the game.

These workshops give you a chance to familiarize yourself with the audition music, find out more about the audition process, learn the UH Drumline technique and build chops. It is also a good chance to get to meet new people and make new friends. While the workshops are not mandatory, coming to a workshop will only help you in the audition process. All rehearsals are on Saturdays 9:00am – 10:30am and are held at the UH Bandroom.
