"Competitive, Award Winning, Budget Friendly and Band Director Approved"

My name is Chris Keniley,  band director, arranger, composer, drill writer and visual technician from Mattoon, Illinois.  As a fellow educator, I strive to place your band program and students in the best possible situation to succeed on and off the field. I work hard to make sure each field show design, visual, drill and music are consistent with your vision and goals.  I also work within school budgets and provide on-going support throughout the marching season. This includes marching bands of all sizes and indoor programs.  Music, Drill Design, and Show Themes are personally designed and tailored to fit the needs of your program. 

With my services you don't just add an arranger and drill writer to your team,  but a partner.  

Here are some of the services offered here at CKM Marching Services
