Joe Petruzzi

Joe is a rising marching band drill designer and avid EnVision 3D Drill Design software user since 2013. His ability to tell stories using EnVision’s creative tools and 3D animation have helped him gain many clients.

Joe is also a key content contributor on the new HowToWriteDrill.com website. HowToWriteDrill.com features short video tutorials from real drill designers who wish to share how they write drill for marching bands, indoor percussion, winter guards and drum corps. While there is no perfect formula on how to write perfect drill, the objective of these videos is to help you learn tricks and techniques from real designers. We hope these videos will inspire past, present and future designers to create entertaining shows using 3D drill design and animation software.
