In August, the band and staff will take part in the Drum Corps International (DCI) "Marching Music Academy," as part of the World Championships in Indianapolis.
The event will take place at Lucas Oil Stadium.
NMK Director Bob Medworth said he was surprised when the program was asked to take part.
"I said, 'We'll do it,'" Medworth said. "We are honored and excited."
The event, a two-day seminar, begins Friday, Aug. 10, and concludes Saturday, Aug. 11. It will include several interactive sessions for music educators, including program design, music arrangement, visual design, technique (musically and marching) and more.
Medworth said in the past, the event has taken place on the East Coast. This is the first time it has taken place in the Midwest.
He added the Marching Knights were asked to take part because of their success within a rural community. Typically, urban area schools have more at their disposal than rural schools.
"DCI said they wanted to find a band that was not an urban Indianapolis school," Medworth said. "They wanted to find a band that was very successful over the years and shouldn't be.
"(DCI) also wanted a band that had staffers heavily involved in drum corps (whose staff) was up on current trends."
Medworth said all staffers for NMK are involved in drum corps in one form or another.
The Marching Knights and staff will work and instruct other music program directors during the seminar.
Medworth said the band and staff will go over typical warm-ups, marching fundamentals, how NMK rehearses, fixing of marching band charts and more.
He said the Marching Knights will also learn more drill for its upcoming marching band season during the seminar.
"They want us to do a three-hour rehearsal and do everything we'd do during a full rehearsal if we were at Northview in the fall," Medworth said.
The Marching Knights are the only band taking part in the clinic.
"The kids will be like the demonstration band," Medworth said. "It's a pretty big honor."
