    Geared towards Middle School and Upper School students that are involved in band, but not limited to those students, this camp is meant to go through fundamentals of drumming, covering technical fundamentals as well as exercises to reinforce and develop those technical fundamentals.

I recommend either a full-size concert snare drum stick (Vic Firth SD1, Innovative Percussion IP-LD) or a smaller marching stick (like a Ralph Hardimon Indoor), but any sticks "larger" than 7A will be adequate.
