Becky Terry


Becky Terry is beyond thrilled to be returning home to the Crossmen. Having grown up attending drum corps events since 3 weeks old, Becky is an advocate for the activity and loves the supportive family environment a drum corps can create when their community comes together. 

After a childhood filled with drum corps competitions and rehearsals, Becky set her mind on making the Crossmen. She was fortunate enough to be taken under wing by some of the most caring, educational, and aware instructors and members from the first day she walked into the Crossmen experience in 1997. After 5 years performing in the mellophone line, Becky knew she wanted to give more to this amazing family and moved on to become an assistant drum major for a season then spent 3 years on the podium until her ageout season in 2005. After aging out, Becky returned to the 2006 Crossmen administration team to assist getting the corps on and down the road safely. 

In order to avoid “drum corps burnout,” Becky took some time away from the very competitive activity to focus on making an impact with high school programs as well as grow as a teacher by studying different teaching styles and approaches from some of the most impactful educators in the activity. She spent over 15 years running drum major and leadership camps across the United States for over 25 programs. Becky also spent that time teaching, consulting, and designing for multiple marching bands, indoor percussion and indoor color guard programs in the Central PA area, including her “full time team” at Mechanicsburg High School. 

In 2015, Mark Figueroa pulled Becky back into the drum corps world with the Jersey Surf to teach mellophones. She fell in love with the activity all over again thanks to an amazing group of educators that would do anything to create a healthy culture for their students. In 2016, Becky returned to teach the midvoices and also assisted the corps as the staff coordinator. 

Realizing her desire for setting groups up for success and allowing educators to provide for their students, Becky spent the 2017-2018 seasons as the Program Administrator for BDPA and 2018 Director of the Blue Devils B in Concord, CA. 

Becky returned to the East Coast to be closer to family and put down some roots in order to start adding to that family. She returned to teach and design for local groups, however, since her Califormia experience, Becky has been bitten by the administration bug and provides administrative and HR support, process development, and fundraising campaigns for a variety of band programs, nonprofits, and companies in central PA.
