Hello! my name is elliott duran.

I am the creator behind all of the content hosted by BDG. Whether its a lesson video on our YouTube channel, a short clip on our Instagram page, an in-depth lesson pack from this website, or a design on one of our various pieces of apparel, it’s all designed, written, narrated, shot, edited, and managed by me. Whenever I’m not working on this project, I work as a full time independent graphic designer, operating out of my design studio, Penrose Creative.

My marching percussion career began in 2008 upon joining my high school drumline. I marched with the Pacific Crest Drum & Bugle Corps in 2011 and 2012, took a break for a few years, then finished out my career with some indoor drumline experience. I marched Elan Percussion in 2015, POW Percussion in 2016, and I aged out with Pulse Percussion in 2017.

I’ve taught various high school programs since 2016 and I would go on to teach the Pacific Crest Drum & Bugle in 2017 and 2018, as well as POW Percussion in 2018. Currently, I teach at the Mandarins Drum & Bugle Corps, Ayala High School, and Sunny Hills High School.

BASS DRUM GROUP’s social media links can be found all over the website, but if you’d like to keep up with my personal and design endeavors, follow my personal social media accounts below!
