Want to play your musical instrument in a fun, low-pressure, low-commitment setting?  Have you ever wanted to try out a brass, woodwind or percussion instrument that you just never had the time to learn, or couldn’t afford to buy?  Or maybe you know how to play one but are out of practice?

If you fall into any of these categories, we want you at the MIT Marching Band's Open Rehearsals!  On Thursdays at 8pm over IAP, we’ll be holding open rehearsals geared specifically towards new members and beginners on new instruments.  We meet at the storage area in W20-423 on the 4th floor of the student center (far west side).

The goal is to have lots of fun and try new things, so mistakes will be expected and encouraged, not judged.  We’re first and foremostly a really welcoming, silly and gregarious group, so no matter what your skill level is, we’ll be very happy you’re there.  We have a large array of instruments for people to try—trumpets, trombones, mellophones (marching French horns), baritones, sousaphones (marching tubas), flutes, clarinets, saxophones, quad drums, a large bass drum and more.

If any of this interests you contact the band at, or just show up at 8pm at W20-423!  You can also visit our new Facebook page or our webpage at for more information.
