Tim Hinton Founder of Marching Arts Education and Marching Roundtable Podcast Composer and Drill Writer of Marching Band Shows like Colleton School 2018
I see myself as a facilitator, helping share information from experts in the marching arts with those who so desperately need it.  After almost 10 years producing the Marching Roundtable podcast, I am excited to get to share the knowledge of those at the very top of our activity in this video format.  I am always impressed and heartened that the most successful designers and instructors in our community are so willing to share their expertise.  We all understand how much the marching arts has impacted our lives and we want everyone to do better.  We want all students to have the best experience possible, learning skills and attitudes that will serve them well throughout their entire life.  It is our hope that this resource will impact the lives of many directors, instructors, designers, parents, and marching members.
