As a rule, marching movements are taught using the step-by-step method.

Movements that require numerous or simultaneous actions by an individual or unit are best taught using the talk-through method.

Movements that have two or more counts are taught using the by-the-numbers method.

Talk Through method:
Movements that require numerous or simultaneous actions by an individual or unit are best taught by the talk-through method. The explanation and demonstration are combined. Each movement or action by the individual is executed as it is orally described. The instructor simply tells the demonstrator how and what he wants him to do. The demonstrator executes the movement as the instructor describes it. Then the instructor has the demonstrator execute the movement at normal cadence.

Step by Step method:
Marching movements are taught by using the step-by-step method. The explanation and demonstration are combined. The movements are taught one step at a time using the step-by-step method of instruction. The instructor explains that on the command of execution, the demonstrator takes only one step and then stops in position until the command Ready, STEP (for the next step) is given. While the demonstrator is stopped in position, the instructor makes on-the-spot corrections and explains the actions to be taken on the next step. The instructor then has the demonstrator execute the movement at normal cadence.
