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
In my elementary school in West Texas, we performed songs on stage about America sometime around 9-11. My music teacher started this idea as a way for our school and town to honor those who died during the terrorist attacks. Most of the songs revolved around the states and their capitals or were songs like God Bless America. At the end of the last song though we would sit down and watch a slide show played to Alan Jackson’s (Where were you). The only problem that I had was that I was the only one who didn’t remember 9-11 happening.

When I was a child my mother would take me to the Oktoberfest parade each year to watch the marching bands. I still remember standing on the sidewalk eagerly waiting for the sound of cadence from the drums; the bass drum like the pulse of a living creature and the sound still playing in my mind long after the parade had ended. Years flew by and suddenly I found myself standing in block band awaiting the three sharp chirps of the drum major 's stainless steel whistle a signal that would spark a chain reaction causing each row to step off like a well-oiled machine. Standing as still as statues we waited until the drum major had called "Band ten hut!" after one short whistle and one long whistle the signal that we were about to step off.
My senior year I did not try out because of my busy schedule, but i regret not making more time for it. It is my passion and the band advanced to area this year. Another extracurricular activity I enjoy is Winter Guard, which is all color guard members and no band members. I have been in Winter Guard for two years and I will be going on my third year this year. The first year we got sixth place at State and I was captain my junior year as well.
Prior to my first day of practice I mistakenly prepared myself for failure. I remembered my coach telling me at the minimum we would be running four miles a day I order to get prepared for our first meet. By the time I finished pondering how long four miles would take, my team had already vanished and left me behind. I knew I had only been running approximately five minutes, however my body felt as if it had been running
My parents names were Jerry, and Mallie McGriff Robinson(Linge Timeline). In addition to that, it was still tough living in America as a African American, nothing has changed in those 7 years of my teen life. I would always get picked on at school for the color of my skin, which is just insane, and absurd. When I got older, I signed up to go in the military,but I broke my ankle, which delayed my deployment in the military. However, I had to wait until I get released from the military.
Including the day of the late spring concert of 2014. The choir and I were waiting for our turn to sing, and out of nowhere a 5th grader starts choking me. I can’t breathe eventually he lets me breathe just to choke me again, by the time I get on stage I can barely breathe by myself, I can not sing at all. I also tell her it happens constantly except in different ways like on the
I ended up going to school with my bed on my back. I broke my backpack when I tried to put it on so I just carried it. All of the leaves tried to grab onto me so by the time I got to school, I looked like a walking forest. Did I mention that last night I did wish for things to start going my way but who knew it would actually happen? I guess I shouldn’t wish for metaphors but really?
Tony Nathan grew up in Alabama where he loved to play sports. When he was in high school he tried to quit the football time. However, Tony’s mother Louise Nathan did not let him and took him straight to the head coach and asked for Tony’s spot back. He was accepted back where he played at safety. But one game changed that; he went from hardly playing to in on every offensive snap.
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 Alongside football games, the Mighty Trojan Marching Band attends many competitions throughout the marching season. Bands true mettle are shown on the field. Competitions are a highlight for many members of the band, since they are filled with rival bands, food and music.
I stood seven steps from the start line, hands sweaty and lips trembling. It seemed as if at any moment I would break the position of attention: feet at a forty-five degree angle, knees slightly bent, chin just above the horizon, and shoulders up, back, and down. Though I always dreamed of representing the Benicia High School Panther Band as their drum major, the lone figure in front of the block of blue and gold wearing a white British uniform and a brown bearskin hat, it never occurred to me that I was finally there. There was no way I could not be nervous; it was the last marching practice before my first competition in my career. Nevertheless, there was no escape.
Bill, which allows service members to go to school free, to get his Agricultural Science Degree. He still continued his path of music. George pursued his music career in 1975. He became the lead singer of a band named “Ace in the Hole Band’. The band members that preformed with George had been in a band called “Stoney Ridge” up until a few weeks before they formed this new band with George, but they were missing their lead singer.
