The first in our web series is Tom Romine, who will be speaking on the important role of the military drummer throughout history. The Revolutionary War drummer was an essential part of the first Army in the colonies at the time of the Revolutionary War. Tom will demonstrate and explain what the drummer did and how the soldiers of the time period depended on the drummers in their daily lives.

Meade, Maryland, the Fourth Infantry Division Band in Vietnam, and Utah National Guard Band. Tom holds a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Music from the University of Utah and Doctor of Musical Arts from the Ohio Sate University. He has been an assistant band director at Logan High for the past fifteen years.
