Rocket Drumline

Welcome to the University of Toledo Rocket Drumline Website!                                                                  


This is the official website for the University of Toledo Rocket Drumline. On this page you will find information concerning auditions, clinics, and performances. Please check back often for new and updated information.

The UT Drumline has a rich history of tradition within the Rocket Marching Band and continues to push the boundaries of marching percussion and performance. The group performs at all home football games as well as events on campus and around the Toledo area. Our 2015-16 Drumline DVD is available to view on our youtube page here and contains clips of our warmups as well as show music. You can also follow us on social media at Facebook

We would also like to thank our sponsors Vic Firth Drumsticks, Pearl Drums, Remo Drumheads, and Zildjian Cymbals for their continued support and standard of excellence when it comes to providing us with the best equipment in the world.

Thanks for stopping by and happy drumming!!!

Free Drumline Clinics

The 2018 Free Drumline Clinics will be held every Wednesday starting January 31st through April 11th. The clinics take place in the University of Toledo Center for the Performing Arts (Address Below) on the UT Campus and meet in room 1023. 

The purpose of these free events is to provide high school and college percussionists the opportunity to learn techniques and to develop their skills in a traditional drumline setting.  These clinics are an excellent development opportunity for students planning to audition for college drumlines this spring, summer, or fall.  Participants will drum alongside members of the UT Rocket Marching Band Drumline, and receive instruction from the UT Drumline Instructor.

Who should attend?

These events are for High School and College Students.


These events are free.  However, we do ask that you contact Mr. Leithauser at toledodrumline@gmail.com with your intent to participate and for further information.
