Structure & Rank
As a Colonial Regimental unit, the Fifes and Drums of York Town recognizes the accomplishments of its members by awarding them rank. As beginning musicians, our members will participate in a recuit class that teaches them the fundamentals of marching and playing their chosen instrument.
After these recruits have gained skill and experience, they will be promoted to the Junior Corps where they will perform as uniformed members of the Corps at parades and other events. When Junior Corps members have demonstrated sufficient expertise in both music and drill, they are promoted to the rank of Corporal and become a member of the Senior Corps, earning the privilege to wear the distinctive, regimental uniform.
