Spending countless hours every week on something might make someone tired, but luckily, this is not the case for me. Since joining the Monacan Band, my life has in one way or another revolved around the band. Four years ago I would have never thought about applying for a leadership position. The idea of having a leadership position seemed scary and different.
Rebekah Woods, a third year front ensemble member and eleventh grader quoted the movie Drumline, saying, “One band, One sound.” Band members have similar mannerisms, such as walking in time when not in band and making simple songs or beats outside of practice. Around each other, band members lose most inhibitions they have at school and enjoy the presence of other band members before practice. The 2015 Mighty Trojan Marching Band
A personal story of me fighting through adversity was during my high school football career. Throughout most of my career, I struggled to have success on both a personal and team level. When looking at my career, it was composed into three segments, my freshman year, my sophomore and junior, and finally my senior year. I started my highschool career during my freshman year where I played on the freshman team. Our school was just moved into a new conference and we were now one of the smallest in terms of number of students.
I'm a triplet; I was the third triplet born; I weighed 3 pounds at birth; I am the third "Ronald Moore"; I earned the number 3 spot on my high school tennis team; I was considered number 3 on my high school cross country team; and I received a 3 year varsity award my senior year in all of my 3 sports in high school. I’m sure there has been other events where the number three has been there with me but these are the most major ones that have affected me. The number 3 is an integral part of who I am. Being a triplet has affected my life in multiple ways. Having two sisters that are the same age as me has made a big impact on my life.
Marching band taught me how to love again. A past band member who had actually been right in front of me for the past five years was standing on the sideline that night and somehow I believe that God placed him in my life to show me that my future is right in front of me. If it would not have been for my boyfriend waving at me one year ago, I do not really know how my life would have turned out. When Alex came into my life everything shifted, I actually had something to look forward to every morning I woke.
But I couldn’t just give up ! I had a strong bond with my teammates. Plus I loved performing because it gave me a rush of excitement and adrenaline throughout my body. Being on this team has taught me that I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to and that I can be a leader. Whenever the captain and co-captain were not able to make it to practice I was the
Conclusion The reason why most marching bands motto is one band one sound is because each band member needs to show leadership, responsibility, and teamwork. By doing this a band will have a unique sound, will have a better attitude, and will always perform very well. With leadership band members display exactly how serious they are, responsibility is shown through knowing their music, and with teamwork is shown through the entire performance. My band director taught us to treat each other with respect.
We quickly had to find our next best passer, for that next week’s big game, and I was next in line. You will never know when you will have to step up, and when chances like this will arise . You always have be prepared, otherwise you might miss your chance. When I found out that I had to libero for one of the biggest games of the season, I was dripping with drops of nerves. I never had a lot of experience playing on varsity and especially not the libero, because on B-squad I was the setter, which is two way different positions.
As for Mr. Peters, I really enjoyed freshman year in his class and love how he keeps things exciting through even the subjects that don’t interest me and how he is always willing to help and truly cares about each student’s individual success. As long as he keeps that up, it is going to be a great
I should be captain because I 'm very hard working and I put in a lot of dedication , I make sure that when given a task I get it done, and I have so much school spirit in me that I would love to show my coaches and my team. Another reason why I should be captain is because I 'm ready for new challenges in cheer and I feel like captain would be a very good challenge for me to achieve. Being a captain might be hard but I 'm ready to take on the responsibility.
For example, I am an active member of the FPC band. I have met a lot of new people being in that club that helped inspire me to make a bigger impact in my community. As I begin volunteering more time outside of school I realized how much I enjoyed dedicating my time to help those around me. Motivating others to do the same then became my goal for my future. My intelligence and intellect are also very important to me and thus have led me to this situation.

Throughout high school I have been very involved in my choir program. Music has always inspired and intrigued me. I decided to audition for Colorado All-state choir my junior year. I had to learn a solo and practice many other aspects of being a well-rounded vocalist. When I auditioned I was very nervous but it was nothing compared to the pain I felt of not making it two months later.
I’m at home on the high school parking lot. It’s the only space the administration grudgingly affords our marching band, and yet it’s ours. The band family lives and thrives off people supporting each other, we are there for each other when no one else is. I was elected by this family to be their band president last spring, and I have been completely changed. Despite the flashy title, I am still just one member of this 140 strong group, and I am still pushing to fulfill the responsibility placed on my shoulders.
Out of all the things I would do in high school, nothing would impact me more than joining the North Rangers Marching Band. It would give me more skills than any other aspect of my life that would prepare me for a future and allow me to evolve from a shy child to an adult with skills that prepared me for my future. I went into high school as a shy kid, with no true direction, at least until I discovered my schools marching band. Although coming in two years behind most of me peers, I knew that this was where I was meant to be, and with that, my mind was set and I was determined. Throughout the next two years, I would face countless difficulties with this that felt at times like tests of my willpower and what this band meant to me, but luckily I would push through, and in the end, would be left with a stronger person.
