Alumni   (The Foundation)     Knee Deep!!!!

The Bishop Watterson Drumline extended family is made up of over 300 alums from the past 30 years who have spent numerous hours honing their own percussion, and life skills to make the program what it is today.

"It has been an honor and a privelidge to have worked with these many young men and women, and to see them grow not only as musicians, but also as human beings. The current line would not be where it is without the Foundation that was laid by the blood, sweat and tears of these people! They have consistently pushed me to be an ever evolving instructor, and to provide them with an ever evolving program to be a part of. I can't thank them enough for what they have given , and provided for me. KNEE DEEP!!!!" - Jim Swanson
