About the Band

The Disneyland Resort All-American College Band Presented by Yamaha is a once in a lifetime music, performance, and educational opportunity. This program has been a Disneyland Resort tradition since 1971 and gives top college musicians from all around the United States the opportunity to perform and learn about the entertainment industry first-hand through performance at a Disney Theme Park and clinics with world-renown artists and experiences in nearby Hollywood.  The 21-piece All-American College Band performs at the Disneyland Resort in California for eleven weeks each summer. If selected, you would perform five-days-a-week at Disneyland Park and attend daily clinics/rehearsals each morning. The daily performance schedule consists of five sets: one on stage in a big band/jazz format and the remaining four as a marching/show band.  As part of the program the band receives valuable educational experiences with industry pro clinicians such as Wayne Bergeron, Gregg Field, John Clayton, Jiggs Whigham, and Rick Baptist, just to name a few. Students will also complete a major educational project that will reflect one of these tracks: Composition and Arranging; Careers in Music; Recording and Production.
