“My name is Todor Tsachev and I graduated the “Lyubomir Pipkov” National School of Musicand “prof. Pancho Vladigerov” National Music Academy. Till 2011 I worked in the Big Band of the Bulgarian National Radio, but retreated to have time for the project I had in my mind. I hope to promote in Bulgaria one of the best traditions of American schools. I took not an easy task to create a School Marching Band by American model in Zlatitsa Municipality. During my stay in the United States participating Student Work and Travel program, I have watched mass events with school and college marching bands and I was extremely impressed. Realizing the huge potential of such a project, I began to explore the possibilities and ways of its realization in Bulgaria. It turned out that this format of school band does not exist here and in the realization of this idea I will meet many difficulties. “
