Marine Detachment, Naval School of Music

Marine Detachment, Naval School of Music

FEATURED STUDENT: Lance Corporal Tyler A. Crocker, from #Blacksburg, VA, is currently enrolled at the Naval School of Music to train as a musician in the U.S. Marine Corps Music Program.

Lance Corporal Crocker went to Blacksburg High School and graduated from Liberty University with a Bachelor’s in Music Performance, emphasis in percussion. While in college, he participated in the Liberty University Marching Band (Official), wind symphony, orchestra, indoor drumline, percussion ensemble, and jazz band. LCpl Crocker also worked as a percussion instructor in the greater Lynchburg area teaching drumline for Liberty Christian Academy (LCA), Brookville High School, and Rustburg High School. After graduating from LU, he worked as a percussion tech for the Liberty University Marching Band and was the Program Coordinator for the Liberty University Indoor Drumline. Outside of his work with the university, LCpl Crocker served as the Principle Timpanist for the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra. His main musical influences are Darrell Pearman of Blacksburg High School, Dr. Kevin Super, Dr. Stephen Kerr, Dr. Kathryn Wert, Jay Ware, Tyler Loftin and Tommy Goddard of Liberty University. Lance Corporal Crocker was recruited by Lynchburg Marines of 4th Marine Corps District.

“I’ve been working to become a United States Marine Corps Musician for almost two years. I auditioned for the music program in July of 2018 and was accepted on my musicianship but was ultimately denied due to being overweight. Losing over 60lbs to meet my goal, I set a standard for my transformation from civilian to United States Marine. This has affected my outlook on every part of my life, faith, family, and my musical career. Here at the Naval School of Music, I am taking on more challenges, but with the help of my mentors and leaders, I know that I will succeed in completing my goals.”
- Lance Corporal Tyler A. Crocker
