Welcome to EMFDrill, where Edward Michael Francis and our passionate team are committed to crafting striking visual designs for marching bands, color guards, winds, and percussion. Our mission is to ensure that every performance becomes a truly unique and unforgettable experience for both your students and the audience.

To achieve this, we harness the power of cutting-edge software tools such as Pyware and Ultimate Drill Book. These tools enable us to create tailor-made show designs that not only cater to the specific talents and strengths of your young performers but also resonate deeply with audiences.

With our extensive experience serving on design teams in over 30 states and counting, we have earned a reputation for excellence, consistently producing award-winning shows. Our ultimate aim is to set the gold standard in the industry. We do this by working closely with each client to thoroughly understand their goals and vision for their students. Then, we translate that vision into a meticulously crafted design that brings it to life on the field, floor, or stage.
