Korachai Silapavitankul (Nond Sil) is originally from Bangkok, Thailand. His journey started when he marched with Siamyth Drum and Bugle Corps, and Bangkok Society Drumline (Base in Thailand). After several years of growing as a performer in Thailand he decided to move U.S. to further his experience in marching arts.
Before Nond stepped into an educator role, he marched bass drum in several notable ensembles, including The Colts Drum and Bugle Corps 2013, The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps 2015 - 2016, Gateway Indoor 2014 - 2016, and Cavaliers Indoor Percussion 2017. Since his age-out, he has worked with several high schools while pursuing his degree in Liberal Arts. He is currently an instructor at Blue Springs South High School, Lee’s Summit High School, Crossroads Indoor Percussion, and Gateway Percussion.
