The two things I enjoy the most is being a journalist and a musician, those two have made my life worth living for. I’ve always been interested in Music since I was little because when I was in Elementary school I played the Violin which made me really enjoy music. Now, I am in highschool and I am the lead trumpet player on my senior year. For Extra Curricular Activity I take part in Marching band for my passion of music and my senior year I lead the band as the drum major. It mostly just trains your ears to listen for the little things in music in my opinion it 's kind of cool.
It all started at McKinley High School. Kendall Aaron, Carlton Phillips, and Corey Thomas they all was in the band for all 4 years. They enjoyed band and it was their main focus after their grades. McKinley High band was so important to them, they took it serious as it was reflecting their grades. They were so excellent in the band that they were offered 3 scholarships from 3 different schools.
I have marched with the Pride of the Hill band since my Freshman year, and experienced some marching in eighth grade, and it isn’t as easy as it seems. I remember watching my siblings march when they were in high school and I was still in primary and intermediate, and I used to think that it looked easy and that it wasn’t really a sport or anything. But after experiencing it myself I realized the amount of work you put into it, the teamwork needed to accomplish things, and the competitions where you hope that all of the hard work, from band camp in the summer, the early morning practices during the week, and the Thursday night rehearsals during the
On a hot game day in Athens Georgia where is the most likely place you can find Carine? Marching with the Redcoat band of course! Throughout High School my dream was to one-day march with the famous Redcoat Band. All I wanted was to wear the striking black hat with the arches and proudly display the Georgia G on my back. I had watched patiently as older members of my high school moved on to UGA and were indoctrinated into the finest band in the land.
Topic B Band in my school is something of a privilege to be in. you have loads of fun and everyone is your friend/family. But even tho it sounds like it 's an easy class I can tell you first hand that it can be anything but. You have to have a pretty clean schedule and be able to go to every practice and be able to do a lot of physical work along with mentally preparing yourself for the intense heat and stress it can cause, but in the long run it helped me with most of the things I do now. When I first started band I was in 7th grade and I had the highest hopes that band would be the best and easiest class I had ever taken but that thought was abandoned the first day of summer band.
Taking the field the Evolution “East Peoria Marching Raiders, you may take the field in competition.” During the four years of high school, I was able to get involved with the East Peoria High School Band program. The marching band has evolved since I joined in 2011 and it has been improving each year. My freshman year we used to march trombones, I was probably the worst one on the field when it came to the marching aspect. There was a lot of foundation work being planted as I learned the terms, how to read drill, remembering counts, memorizing music, managing homework on long Tuesday night rehearsals and most importantly how to enjoy oneself in the midst of a struggle. This was just the first year!
Of my ultimate goals was to make one of the most exclusive bands in Nebraska. When I was selected to play in the 2015 All-State honor band, my dream transpired. Since the seventh grade I have participated in jazz band along with concert band; I now play in my high school 's most selective jazz band. Humbled by my elite group members, I accept many improvisation solos to express my ideas and find my place among
On November 1st, 2014 at 11:34pm the Summerville High School marching band was announced the SCBDA 5A State Champion for the first time in a decade. I believe this to be my greatest accomplishment, being a part of an organization that accomplished so much even though we were the underdogs of the rest of the competition. Our high school was not the most musically talented, nor are we the largest. However, the heart and soul we put into our performance was recognized by the judges. My senior year was a great year for me.
As a senior in high school, I had assumed that I knew everything about the sport I had been around my entire life, cheerleading, but when football season ended that year, things changed. I told my coaches that I needed to focus on school and work, needing to prepare for college the next year. Nevertheless, I offered to help with practices, if they would allow me to do so. I was granted the title of team advisor, and given the ability to attend the competitions free of charge. During practices, I assisted with spotting new stunts and changing rounds, helping critique.
Gymnastics requires hard work and dedication, but it is worth it because I genuinely love the sport. I have sacrificed many hours for gymnastics, but I have gotten a lot from it in return. I met one of my best friends at gymnastics and some of my coaches have become like family to me. I have also discovered a lot about myself. Doing a gymnastics routine all by myself in front of a crowd of people is scary, but it has also taught me that
Because of his outstanding ability to motivate us, the quality of our music and marching drills rapidly improved. As a result, we were awarded superior ratings and best in class awards during our Fall competition season. My service as band president has taught me the value of a good work ethic, the strength to go the extra mile, commitment, and selflessness. I will carry these lessons with me to college next year and eventually to my chosen career as a Graphic Designer. In an interview with a local news station about our band’s fundraising drive to purchase new uniforms, I said, “It’s a new era for the Ardmore Tiger Marching Band.” I’m so thankful to have had a hand in such a significant
To me band seems to be a very united group and I have always wanted to be in band and learn how to play an instrument, particularly the piano. I have even considered joining band in college, so it is not too late for that, but I believe that it is too late for high school band, since I am about half way through my senior year. A few of my friends are participating in band and they are always talking about how they found a new way of thinking and memorizing information from the band. By joining the band many of my shy friends have came out of their shells and learned to be more out going and better present their information due to their competitions and such that they present in front of thousands of people that are judging them. SinceI have always been really introverted individual, I believe that joining the band it would have helped me come out of my shell also.
