Please use this page to find all music that will be performed during games. It is your responsibility to listen to, and learn your parts for both the shows and music in the stands. Do not rely upon practices to learn your music – you won’t. There is too much music to memorize and too much to learn elsewhere, especially if you are an incoming Freshman. Listen to as many recordings as you are able for aid. Knowing the music will help you to learn your own part. Note that these are arrangements and will not necessarily follow the form or harmonic structure of the original recording.
The Field Show should take precedence as it is the visual and aural representation of our program. The music is all on Spotify.com, jwpepper.com, and YouTube.com. Freshman, memorization is essential as we do not typically use lyres to hold music while we play. You may but it is harder than it seems. Thus, the stress on learning your music early. The following pieces are the most important as they will happen at every game so learn them first: We Da Tigers, Star Spangled Banner, On Wisconsin. Below, in one folder, are pdfs for each instrument in the field show. In the other folder, MP3s for reference are available so you may hear how your part should sound. *Percussion – Midi drums sound odd and the quint toms are not fully accurate (this is a midi issue). Look at the core rhythms and try to get down what you are able.

The field show sheets and coordinate cards will be found here (Print off all sheets but only your instrument for the coordinates):
QR codes are for those that wish to use the mobile app to see where they are supposed to be on the field versus carrying around drill sheets.
