INSIDE the CIRCLE (A Proven Method for a Successful Marching Band-2nd edition)

The purpose of this marching band method book is to share the foundation Matt and Ben Harloff have learned and researched.

This book is separated into three different chapters:

  • Full Ensemble Chapter 19 files to download
  • Brass Chapter 4 files to download
  • Woodwind Chapter 9 files to download
  • The Full Ensemble Chapter focuses on creating a consistent technique approach to the full ensemble.
  • The Brass and Woodwind Chapters are more focused on the development of the individual players.


Each exercise has objectives, instructional notes to help you understand the technique program and a list of “Quick Comments for Students” designed to give the director critical reminders for students. Another important feature of this book is adding a visual component to the exercises. Students might sound great standing still, but unless they sound great while marching, it doesn’t count. We sincerely trust this method book will support you and your students in achieving a higher level of performance, on and off the marching band field.

INSIDE the CIRCLE (Off-Season Training)

In the athletic world, maintaining 50-60% fitness takes less effort than starting from scratch. The same statement can be applied to the marching band. In every discipline students can lose valuable skills during an off-season period.

  • The team will then have to take a great deal of time to rebuild those skills when the season begins.
  • This book will help students maintain and build skills during the off-season.
  • You will find easy-to-learn exercises to help veteran marching band students’ maintain and build on their foundation while beginning to develop new student’s skills.
  • This book is not intended to replace the concert season program.
  • In fact, the program is set up to enhance your concert band program. We believe concert band should be the nucleus of the entire band program.
  • The program offers a refreshing plan that will enhance the daily winter routine, help students play concert band music at a higher level and create an off-season training program for the marching band.

"The technique and demands placed on today's marching students have never been higher. How much easier would each fall be if your band did not have to start from scratch? What if your students had a way to stay in contact with the technique of a marching band season, without taking anything away from the concert season? Obviously the benefits could be huge. That is the direction of "Inside the Circle: Off-Season Training for the Marching Band." -- Greg Bimm, Marian Catholic Director of Bands.
