Training Circular TC 1-19.50 The Army Drum Major April 2017
TC 1-19.50, The Army Drum Major, is the primary drum major training publication of the Army Music program. It reintroduces and updates material previously published in TC 12-45, The Marching Band.
TC 1-19.50 makes numerous changes from TC 12-45. The most significant changes are: a discussion of drum major responsibilities, attributes, characteristics, and equipment; updates or changes to parade rest, foot technique, drum major reverse, dress and alignment procedures, instruments up, forward march, roll off, cut off, square turns (previously called left (right) turns), guide turns, countermarch, mace pump (previously called ceremonial mace swing), sound off sequence; additions of mace signals or procedures or both for instruments down, half step march, condense (expand) the formation, advanced mace techniques, and concert formation; a discussion of drum major training; and a discussion of drum major performance in specific ceremonies and tattoos.
Text conventions: This publication uses unique text conventions to facilitate understanding: preparatory commands are Italicized in Bold, commands of execution and directives are CAPITALIZED IN BOLD, references to positions and movements are italicized, and names of music or bugle calls are placed in “italicized quotations.”

Chapter 1 discusses the role of drum major and the history, responsibilities, attributes, characteristics, and equipment thereof.
Chapter 2 identifies the fundamental principles of Army drum major technique, and describes the drum major’s associated techniques, procedures, and drill movements necessary to lead the marching band.
