Colin McNutt

Colin has his roots right here on Cape Cod where he graduated from Barnstable High School. He earned his stripes, working his way up the DCI ranks, as a player ('92 tenor solo champion), tech , and instructor. He is presently the Percussion Caption Supervisor and Arranger for the ten-time DCI World Champion Cadets Drum & Bugle Corps. Colin has served on the faculty of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he is an alumnus with a double-degree in Classics and Music Education. He is a sought-after clinician with Yamaha, Zildjian, REMO, and Vic Firth.
He is also a friend. I have known him for over 16 years – and his untiring devotion to the art of percussion never ceases to amaze me. Sure, he is a great instructor – but his care for the player, the "student" holding the sticks, is what impresses me most.  He finds your very best - and you'll surprised by the discovery.
