We are happy to announce the addition of Jason Majerczak to the #UP15 design team. Jason was with United in 2007 when the group won WGI-PIO Gold. He also helped United obtain finalist status in its first year of WGI World Class competition. Check out a copy of Jason's bio below.
Jason has been involved with the marching arts since the age of 14. As a member of the Bushwackers Drum and Bugle Corps quad line and pit (1992-1995), he had the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the top percussionists in the country. In 1996, Jason became a member of the Cadets of Bergen County quad line where he again got to work with some of the top names in marching percussion.
After attending West Chester University and graduating with a degree in music education, Jason became the instrumental music director at Upper Darby High School in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. For 16 years, he ran the marching band, indoor drum line, indoor colorguard, concert band, wind ensemble, and jazz band. While teaching and designing for Upper Darby, Jason became interested in visual design and began writing for Upper Darby HS as well as various other programs.
As the director and designer of the Upper Darby Indoor Drumline, Jason and his team took the ensemble to new levels by being a perennial finalist as well as winning the WGI Open Class in 2013. In 2014, the ensemble was promoted to the Scholastic World class where they placed 10th.
Jason is currently the instrumental music director at Drexel Hill Middle School in the Upper Darby School District. He enjoys writing and consulting for many different schools, and he enjoys his newly found free time at home with his wife and four children. He is currently a judge for the USBANDS. He is very excited to be joining the United Percussion team again and looks forward to working with this wonderful ensemble.
