The Bushwackers

Looking for a recreational activity for you, your child, or a friend but not sure what to do? Well, The Bushwackers Drum and Bugle Corp. is opening membership to all willing to learn and of any age. Experience with instruments is optional but having fun is required. The Bushwackers Drum and Bugle Corp is a non-profit organization that provides education in music, visual arts and life skills and it wants the Princeton community to be a part of it.

What better way to grow as a community than by using music as the medium to express energetic songs as part of a group. With their goal of spreading appreciation for the musical and visual arts, the Bushwackers want to encourage this view to the younger generation. Those who are less experienced, follow directions and willing to listen are welcome to join the new group “Junior Corps”. The Junior Corps is a group directed towards children and teenagers who will not only learn how to play but also get to prove their skills with performances. There is no feeling that compares to seeing a student enjoy performing in parades and exhibitions after just learning how to use their instrument.

The Bushwackers Drum and Bugle Corp is a six-time DCA world champion that wants to help Princeton’s students reach their full potential while working hard and having fun. “Above all, one of the key things our participants learn is simply stated, but complex to convey – how to get things done,” said the director of Bushwackers Drum and Bugle Corps, Bob Gupta.

The cost for the entire program is $95 payable on Apr 28 (The first rehearsal is always free to attend). There is no official age for The Junior Corp. so long as the child can listen and follow directions, they can taught and have fun learning.
