I am applying to USNA and looking into doing several different activities, one being the drum and bugle corps. I come from a really good high school band and have played trumpet for 7 years so I could definitely make the band, but I really wanted to try out for the drum line at USNA(I would learn the basics before trying out). So my question is kind of several questions: 1.) Could I tryout for the drum line, but if I don't make it, play the trumpet instead? 2.) Do they even put freshmen on the drum line? (And when I say drum line I mean either snares or quads...) I'm really just kind of bored with the trumpet, which is why I would want to switch, but if I couldn't do snares or quads I would just play trumpet.
