The Victorian All-Star Drumline is a new initiative by D² designed to give drum set and percussion students from Victorian High Schools the opportunity to take their playing to the next level. The group is a new performance ensemble that will deliver world class, dedicated drumline education in a high performance environment. The Drumline will challenge these young performers in a fun, encouraging environment designed to help each player maximise their potential. 

D² have been at the forefront of Marching Percussion education in Australia for over a decade. The Victorian All-Star Drumline is our most exciting education project. We are bringing together some of the world’s best Marching Percussion educators including Ralph Nader (USA), Bill Bachman (USA), and Chelsea Levine (USA) in addition to our local education team.

We can wait to see what  we can do together.
