About two hours later, the Skeleton Clique (people of the Twenty One Pilots unofficial fanbase) dispersed as the concert came to a close, awestruck by what we had all witnessed. Between all the jumping and belting lyrics, I was completely exhausted, though still jittery from the adrenaline. I was left with the feeling of craving for more live performances by Twenty One Pilots, and hoped that I could go to more concerts in the future. After this summer experience, I have realized that music is something that every person should treasure, no matter their personality. Music is significant in many parts of one’s life, from birth to death.
In the first paragraph of this source, Martinez talks about how “When the topic of marching band is brought up, many students assume how "easy" it is to go out on a field and play several songs that have to be memorized to near perfection. If marching band is not considered a sport, then ask yourself this: can you march 12 plus miles, while staying aligned with your rank and file (rows and columns)?” In all honesty, it really is not that easy to march while play songs that you need to have memorized within a couple weeks. It is difficult to focus on so many things at once. You are supposed to make sure you are playing the right notes, play and march in time and in step, keeping your legs straight, roll stepping, and keeping your posture straight and
“Oh sorry,” slurred the guy, who went back to swaying with his friend. At the end of the concert the people who drank more than they should have, were all crowding around the port-a-potties waiting to use them; which gave the area a sickly smell. “I am never going to a country concert again,” Brooke said as we walked out of the track. “Agreed.” Since that concert I have made sure that I stand away from the areas that are an easy access to the port-a-potties and the concession stands. I also try to stand away from people who are drinking alcohol.
My life has been full of many opportunities to participate in things that I love and these opportunities have taught me fabulous lessons. Through my persistent hard work in the Clark high school marching band I have been very fortunate to learn important lessons about positivity, service and respect. Being in my high school’s marching band has drastically changed my life for the better. I would not have made it through all the curve-balls that school has thrown at me had it not been for the marching band, which taught me to find the positive in any and every situation. Working out and making countless mistakes in the scorching Texas heat does not seem like the ideal place to learn about positivity, however that is exactly what it is.

In high school, I was in marching band, so that means more time spent involving band. During marching season, our Saturdays were consumed with band competitions. Because of the competitions, our practice times were every day during band class and every Monday afternoon. During practice time, we would have to go through a plethora of repetitions. If we did not do our best when we practiced at a particular part of the show, our band director would make us go back and do it again.
When Leper is the first to seriously enlist in the war it comes to a shock to all of the boys at Devon: “‘I’m going to enlist in these ski troops,’… Threats to enlist that winter were always declaimed like Blinker’s, with a grinding of back teeth and a flashing of eyes; I had already heard plenty of them. But only Leper’s was serious” (66). Before Leper actually went off to war, the war seemed to be a far off and unrealistic to the boys. The idea of enlisting was never considered a reality. They had “heard plenty of” young boys flaunting their choice but they were empty threats.
My school's chorus combines with the choir of a nearby school and sings a multi-movement work accompanied by a professional orchestra. This mass of extremely diverse people is dubbed the "Super Chorus." Usually, the two schools do not get along very well, seeing as we are sports rivals, but on this day, everyone is brought together purely for their love of music. No matter how different we are from each other, we all must face the same grueling rehearsal. The Super Chorus practices throughout the school day and into the night to perfect the piece.
People should read it because not only is it informative but relatable in some aspects. The theme of family and love universal, anyone can relate to it. Everybody has somebody that they continue to fight for, someone who is their everything and they’ll do anything for because that’s how much they love them. Ishmael’s story explores that, how his family kept him going. His story also informs those who are less knowledgeable in the history of Sierra Leone.
Marching band was physically demanding. At school by six am, marching until first period, and staying after to play at the football games not getting home until midnight. I would become so tired physically and mentally that I would just collapse at the end of the day. I never any time to do homework, and it was reflected in my grades. I just couldn't do it.
Competitions are a highlight for many members of the band, since they are filled with rival bands, food and music. While marching band members see band having an ultimatum, get a trophy, or don’t try, Band director Mr. Farrell stresses the importance of professionalism, effort and fun. Third year marcher, trumpet player and junior Blakely Parker added, “What beats talent? Effort.” The Mighty Trojan Marching Band stresses working as an individual for a great purpose: the band. Despite all of the work, time and effort put into marching band individually, the band works as one unit to make a great show and
So they had a really good time, but they didn’t know that they audition in two days and they didn’t study their audition piece on a snare drum. So, that morning they had to get up early in the A.M. and practice their audition piece at 10:00 a.m. So they all met up at Kendall house at 2:00 p.m. to go to Southern to audition. All of them auditioned and they had to wait two days to find out who made it, then all of them was nervous because they didn’t do that good on their audition piece so they was really nervous. Two days later they all was at Corey house and all of them got an unexpected call and they all answered and it was the band director Mr. Hamyer and he said that they all made it to the human jukebox, all of them started to cry because that was their dream an Corey, Kendall, and Carlton finally did it!
and and Colorguard have been practicing constantly, and achieved many awards during the last few parades. The members of Colorguard and Band have been working their tails off every day to ensure more achievements in the future. Band members have been practicing everyday to get everything right. They start practice at 7:40 a.m, and play through the first period of the day with another period for Concert Band and after-school practices until 9 p.m. To get prepared for competitions, they all must arrive on time and do the visual and music parts of their warm-ups. After all the warm-ups, the drum major dismisses each section to go onto the field to perform.
After numerous rejections, Rudy is finally admitted to Notre Dame during his final semester of transfer eligibility. He rushes home to tell his family, with his father announcing the news to his steel mill workers over the loudspeaker. Rudy persuades Fortune to promise to come see his first game if Rudy is permitted to suit up. After walking as a non-scholarship player for the football team, Ruettiger convinces coach Parseghian to give him a spot on the practice squad. An assistant coach warns the players that 35 "scholarship" players will not even make the "dress roster" of players who take the field during the games but notices that Ruettiger exhibits more drive than many of his scholarship teammates.
Shown in paragraph one, the author states, “Ian and Mr. Cavanagh wanted lively Irish-or even Scottish-music, but the eighth-grade class was watching the auditions and had to like the band.” This sentence proved that Ian quickly began to be affected by his classmates and teachers, because of the fact that he had to pick the festival winner wisely, and make everyone happy. Also, in the paragraph fourteen the author stated, “When the song ended, the audience clapped and called for more.” then in paragraph twenty-three, the author stated, “Shouts of “Hey, Dominic!” and “Whoo-hoo, Mr. 50’s!” filled the gym.” These paragraphs show that, Ian was having to face a hard decision on picking a winning act. In which he later decided to try putting the top two acts together, with the intentions of trying to make everyone happy and satisfied. Despite the different backgrounds on both stories, both Junius and Ian were affected by their peers quite a lot, for trying to make their surroundings happy. Although Ian was more successful than Junius, they both had the same goal, and overall same obstacle.
