A graduate from Temple City High School, Chris Pan has represented himself and his community as a drum major throughout the country. His drum major career launched when he joined the “Pride of Temple City” his freshman year of high school and quickly found himself involved in the drum major program. He studied as a drum major apprentice for one year before rising to the position of assistant drum major. His junior year of high school he was selected as the head drum major and served in that position for two years. Part of Chris’ responsibilities as a head drum major were to oversee and monitor the progress of the several aspiring drum majors in the program. He worked hand in hand with his instructors to ensure the development of future drum majors at Temple City and to help establish the Temple City name in the drum major community. Upon graduating from high school Chris began his studies at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA. He also had the opportunity to tour the country as a DCI drum major for Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps. Chris’ experience as a drum major allowed him to help in Impulse’s successful return to DCI Open Class Championships in Michigan City, Indiana and ultimately DCI World Class Prelims at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. Chris looks forward to being able to spread his unique insight with aspiring drum majors hoping to pursue their passions just as he did.
