Welcome to C.E. Kilian Designs, where we provide Quality
Marching Arts Services for bands, drum corps, indoor drum lines, and
many other types of ensembles. We are also accepting commisions for original works for concert band, jazz band, or any other type of ensemble.
Navigate using the menu bar above or by clicking on one of our services
We provide many options, including: custom music arrangements, original compositions, and pre-written arrangements that are customizable or sold "as is."
In addition to wind music, we can also offer battery and pit percussion music for both outdoor and indoor shows. All custom arrangements and compositions are written specifically for your group with as much or as little input as you desire. You will be satisfied!
Our drill is written using the
latest software by designers with experience writing for groups of
every ability level and size. We also can now provide color guard design!
We want you to have the most cohesive show possible. Our drill designers
will speak with your guard staff about their needs and will also suggest
body moves and visuals for the musicians. You'll receive easy to read
drill charts along with coordinate sheets to help your members keep
tidy dot books.
Don't have the time to design
a whole show yourself? Out of ideas or looking for a fresh perspective?
At C.E. Kilian Designs we can pick the music, storyboard the
show, design the show concept, design the props, provide show logos
t-shirts...YOU NAME IT!
We can do it all for less!
Bring our experts and designers
to you! We have staff available to come to your school and
give on-site clinics, teach valuable leadership/drum major training
seminars, or even have us come in and teach your band camp.
