Hard Work earns success in marching band. Continuous playing , short weekends, and exhausting practices gain your band praise and pride. The continuous playing in band class and then at practice after school seems to never stop. After the practices are done you get the songs so stuck in your head that they feel like the songs are implanted in your head. We mostly learn the song during band camp but we perfect them in band class throughout the school week.
I currently serve as the vice president of the organization, and in the marching band, I am the brass captain. So how will being an active member of the band contribute to my success at Penn State? The simplest answer is that being in the band proved to be the “key” in unlocking my drive to be something. Since the start of my freshman year of high school I worked so hard to be an excellent musician and to achieve a leadership position in the future years. As the years progressed, I managed to earn not one, but four leadership positions, and qualify to participate in many band festivals.
One specific event that come to my mind that I am most proud of is leading my marching band for national championships inside of Met Life Stadium. With hundreds of fans cheering for the Central Bucks South Marching Titans, a feeling of pride had consumed me in a way I never felt before. The hundreds of hours my marching band had put into practice had shown through, destroying it 's original façade of mediocrity, breaking the limits, and pushing towards being great. Even coming in fifth place the overall accomplishment that my band and I felt brought a sense of success to us. Moving up in a higher division and making the top five out of 20 other bands in the country is something I will never forget.

The band director ended up making where low brass wasn't a section, everyone was there individual leaders. Which Ozzy a hissy fit over, because he wanted the section to be whole, but in the end he got over it. At the end of every Marching season, we have a concert and play every song we have played that season and awards are given out. Due to all my hard work and practicing I got the “Most Improved”
I realized that the only way I could achieve the results I desired was to work harder, so I focused more energy into my schoolwork and it paid off. I continued to play the flute all through high school, and participating in marching band had an equally important impact on my life. Through marching band, I learned the importance of time management. Rehearsals every day after school, Friday night football games, and Saturday competitions that lasted all day greatly cut the amount of free time I had. In fact, the majority of my free time seemed to disappear, until I started working on my time management skills.
Chambers and the other section leaders. My fellow students became friends and my band director became a mentor. Gradually, I learned to guide considerately while upholding the standards of the program. As a mentor, Mr. Chamber’s guidance allowed me to flourish academically and spiritually.

I always enjoy going to lectures where a Deaf person is presenting. During Deaf Week I attended many lectures that were interpreted and I really loved going to them, because I feel like I learned a lot. Not only were they informative they were also very educational. During Deaf Week I brought my boyfriend, who is not in ASL, but the event was interpreted and he loved it. He learned so much, so I knew that this event was not going to disappoint.
