Pulse Percussion is excited to announce the return of Glen Crosby as musical Director for the 2018 season! After a two year hiatus, Glen is back in a more full time role than ever before. Glen was heavily involved from 2009 until 2015 and has played a substantial role in what Pulse is today. We are excited for our members and staff to have the opportunity to work closely with him once again.

Glen is an independent music educator, arranger, consultant and performer with a specialization in marching percussion. Glen currently runs the marching percussion program at UCLA, works with Arcadia High School and consults with a few Drum and Bugle corps. He also offers private lessons in his lesson studio. Contact him at glencrosby@mac.com if interested.

Glen began his marching percussion career in 1981 as a performer with the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps and aged out in 1984. He went on to work with the Garfield Cadets, Santa Clara Vanguard, Velvet Knights, Capital Regiment, Glassmen, Freelancers, Blue Knights, Academy, and Carolina Crown achieving five DCI World Championships (Cadets (1985), Santa Clara Vanguard (1989, 1999), Carolina Crown (2013) and five High Percussion Awards in his various roles as a consultant, battery technician, assistant caption head, and technique manager for the Santa Clara Vanguard (1988, 1989, 1998, 2004) and the Cadets (2003).

Glen’s teaching philosophy is guided by his belief that music offers the opportunity to impart life lessons through ignition, dedicated practice, and informed and experienced coaching. Whether it is students with special needs, professional musicians, or any student, Glen’s approach to teaching is based on process, patience, and persistence.
