I strongly recommend only one on the podium for a band that size. |
We've had 45-60 each of my 7 years here and had only one drum major. But...
We may have two drum majors next year for the first time ever. If so, we will clearly define the chain of command: me, DM then assistant DM. This hopefully will avoid conflicts. Only one will conduct at a time, whether on field or in stands. Not sure yet how I'll pick who directs what.
Benefits of having two for us mostly would be having someone to step in if the DM gets sick. However, hasn't been a problem the first 7 years here, so... I dunno, whatever.
