Over the past six years, I have become very passionate about music to where I have made it my biggest goal to become a high school band director. Participating in marching band every year, I learned how to teach marching fundamentals to students. I have also participated in concert band in which I learned how to teach students to play with beautiful tones and phrases like a professional musician. It’s an amazing feeling knowing that you have made a huge impact on a student just by sharing your knowledge with them. Teaching students how to
The Mighty Trojan Marching Band: Garner’s Unsung Talent Written By: Lauryn Gibbs The Mighty Trojan Marching Band marches to a cadence played by the drumline to Friday night football games.

At the end of third quarter, the brass performs the crowd favorite, “brass suicides”.
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.

Forty eight seconds to show who we are, what we came to do, and what we are made of. Being sophomores and juniors we have to think about all of the college scouts that will be there, looking at our time splits and hoping we will get a call, a letter, or even an email asking for us to run track and field at their college. This is an important day. Not just for me, not just for my relay team, but for every single athlete here. This is the type of event that will put your name out there and help you find the college of your dreams.
I introduced myself and asked if it were still possible to join the cross country team. Unlike today, where legally high school athletes are required to have a specific number of practices under their belt before they are allowed to compete, I was allowed to join the team immediately. After filling out a few forms, I thanked him for the opportunity. But, as I was leaving the room, he said “Just so you know, today is the team’s first race of the season and I’m going to let you run. You can use it as your first practice.” About nine hours later I was standing on my first starting line awaiting my first cross country race.. For a uniform, I had to use my all-cotton gym shorts and T-shirt.
Throughout my life, I have participated in a lot of activities and have had several different experiences. In the past, I have been involved in several different activities, such as Marching Band. Not only that, I have also made commercials for a product that I invented for my high school economics project. With these experiences, they make oral and visual literacy the easiest types of literacy for me to do. During my time in Marching Band, I played the baritone and was the section leader of the entire low brass instruments in our band.
