    Does anyone know how you could go about auditioning for a drumcorp?

    Look up the corps you're wanting to audition for and find out when and where their camps are taking place.... Make sure you are more than prepared when you attend your camps. Audition packets are usually found on the corps' website

    Edit: I can't stress the 'being prepared' part enough.

    Are the packets free?

    Some are, some are not. World class corps audition packets usually require a $10-$20 fee.

    Off the top of my head, no. Free audition packets usually lie within the realm of open class corps though. Either way, if you end up purchasing an audition packet and don't end up making the corps, you're really not losing anything. The experience you'll get from camps and mastering the audition packet are well worth $20. Of course, this is just my opinion.

    I don't see a reason why you shouldn't audition! Marching corps is one of the best experiences in the world! Just practice. A lot!
