The National Drumline Camp is an annual 3-day event held in Melbourne for drummers and percussionists of all ages and skill levels. It is the only camp of it’s kind in the world and has been bringing some of the world’s best Marching Percussion educators to the Australian drumming community since its inception in 2012.

The camp is designed to give everyone involved an opportunity to experience the exciting world of marching percussion in a fun, friendly environment with world class instructors.

For those who have played in a drumline before, it is a chance to build upon and enhance their skills with world class instructors from the USA and Australia; for those who haven’t, it is a chance to get a taste for this demanding and rewarding style of performance.

At the conclusion of the camp, all participants have the opportunity to show off their new skills to friends and family at our free Sunday afternoon Gala concert in which they will perform alongside the rest of the campers, the D²Drumline, and our entire team of Instructors. This is NOT an event to be missed!
