Letter to Prospective Students


GSU Signature with Motto


Dear Prospective Student

We are very proud to have this opportunity to invite you to become a member of the Grambling State University “World Famed” TIGER Marching Band. At this time, we are reaching for new heights, new goals and methods of teaching, as well as innovative ideas. The time is coming for us to consider, evaluate and audition prospective personnel for the Grambling State University Concert/Marching Band for a new school term.

Under new procedures, you will receive a set of application forms for a Band Service Award.  This application must be filled out and returned to our office immediately.  If you have any other required paperwork to mail to the university (i.e. Admission Application, Housing Application, Financial Aid Application or Medial Immunization/History Form) we will be glad to forward them to the appropriate department(s).

All applicants seeking financial assistance through our Band Service Award Program must perform the following on the attached sheet listing the audition requirements.  If you choose to mail a videotape/DVD/email video of your audition, please feel free to do so by mailing to the address below to the attention of the appropriate band director. Auditions via Skype/Facetime may also be scheduled. I suggest that all applications and forms be prepared and mailed immediately as we will have a limited amount of funds available for Band Service Awards.  When you are ready to schedule an appearance audition, please contact the appropriate director listed below:

  • Michael Hendrix, Associate Director of Bands I, (318) 274-2498
  • Edwin B. Thomas, Associate Director of Bands II & Percussion, (318) 274-3769
  • Kendall Damond, Asst. Band Director – Lower Brass, (318) 274-2694
  • Dr. Steven Cunningham, Asst. Band Director-Upper Brass, (318) 274-6107

We look forward to receiving your application.
