The drumline has annual auditions that take place in the spring semester before the upcoming fall season. Auditions for 2022 will take place May 14 & 28.  Individuals who are interested in auditioning should consider attending in-person help sessions in the evenings during the spring semester.

All interested individuals should first register for an audition using the link below if they have not already. This will add you to our information mailing list which will provide audition updates, reminders, and allow you to stay connected with the SMB!

Each individual will need to send in recorded videos of exercises and music (to be determined). Make sure to Register to get the final information and the deadline for video submission. The submission can be sent using the form below.

Help Sessions

We will offer help sessions free of charge beginning in February.


If you have a conflict with the audition date for any reason, please contact Jon Weber at drumline@msu.edu as soon as possible. Although an in-person audition would certainly be best for all, we will work with every individual to find the best solution for getting a complete and fair audition.
