The Troopers Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps is pleased to announce the Brass Instructional Team under the caption leadership of the very skilled and talented Trevor Bailey. Trevor marched baritone at the Troopers from 2003-2005. In 2007, he returned as a member of the brass staff during the resurgence of the Troopers and remained part of the brass team through the corps's return to the Top 12 in 2009. While in pursuit of his doctorate, Trevor has been a member of the brass teams at Troopers, The Cavaliers, Phantom Regiment, and has served as an adjudicator and consultant with various programs, competitions, and festivals around the world. Currently, Trevor is a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Alabama.
Arranging the brass book for the alumni corps will be Jason Nitsch. Jason marched with the corps in the late 90's and is currently the Director of Bands at Memorial High School in Frisco, Texas as well as the Staff Coordinator at The Guardians Drum & Bugle Corps.
