Marching Band and Color Guard Consultation

With decades of work in the pageantry arts at all levels, our consultants offer services with a primary focus on small marching units with limited budgets. It is our hope that we can offer services for small programs that rival the resources of the larger ones. We feel that no one person should dominate the budget of a marching program and we will work within your budget to bring you design, technical, and administrative services that will lead to long term successful programming. We take into account your current resources and will work with your staff to make sure they remain the primary design and technical voice. We will even consult with your staff and boosters to build long term program capacity. We do not believe in designing your program in isolation and then leaving you to make changes without consultation. At Forward Youth, we take only limited amounts of clients per year offering our full attention to your program.
