From here, you, or your child can be promoted directly to the playing line, or to the flagline. To be promoted to playing line, a recruit must be not only good at marching, but show proficiency at their instrument. Drummers must learn and memorize 8 songs (which are outlined in the Marquis Handbook), while fyfers must learn and memorize 10 songs before being promoted to playing line. After being promoted, playing line privates march with the fyfers and drummers. They are now able to participate in all parades and performances. If the recruit isn't ready to become a playing line member or they don't want to play an instrument, and they are good marchers, they will be promoted to flagline private. Flagline privates march behind the drummers, and in front of the recruits. Flaglne privates typically hold muskets, and they will learn to hold flags.
