Last month, Jason traveled to Guatemala to judge marching band competitions and give drum workshops.
While there Jason traveled between two cities, Guatemala City and Xela for Bandas de Marcha de
Guatemala (BMG) 2018 Championships where he judged their final competitions of the season. At
each competition there were multiple categories including, Tradicional (Traditional), Bandas Latinas
(Latin Bands), and Bandas de Marcha (Marching Bands), and Drum Corps.
In both cities, he taught multiple drum workshops to middle and high school kids. He discussed with them the importance of technique and how it helps with your ability to achieve more advanced rudiments and patterns. The students also learned about tempo and rhythmic control.
