I had finally gotten a piece right. I did it again and, I had played it right five times in a row without a single mistake. Every time I have looked at my trumpet I remember that moment. I am often playing it because it still is able to make magical music.
A marching band sectional rehearsal can be fun and still be productive. A section leader can play several games with his group to help improve issues specific to a saxophone player 's technique. Any activity that is part of a saxophone sectional should be specific to the instrument and help improve the player 's individual skill. Playing games unrelated to music should be avoided as they waste the band 's time. Scale Contests Have someone act as the time keeper.
I was putting in the work at practice, getting lots of reps in at point guard, and really getting to know the sets better. Then Gavin got hurt and a part of me wad down because he was getting on a roll and helping the team win but the competitive side of me was thinking that now is my chance to make my mark and to get some varsity minutes. We played Maquoketa and I didn’t get in the game. Little down about that and the fact that we lost to Maquoketa who we beat last time by more than 25 points, but it was there freshman who punched us in the stomach when he mad a last second shot to beat us by one. Gavin was back the next day at practice and my spirit was dead.
However, during the first transition into the new tempo, it was a bit too quick, which does not allow the audience to savor the moment. It was have been more effective if they have stretched their ritardando apparent there. Moreover, the transition into the quicker tempo gave a more determined feeling to it. The trumpet soloist in this part of the piece has articulated the melody well, bringing into light the emotion they want to portray. Nevertheless, one suggestion towards the melody line for the whole piece would be phrasing.
From the whole concert band, “Eyes Open” needed more work on. When we got the song in the beginning, we were pretty good at it, but it still needed more work on and more improvement. It did not help that we did not practice it the day before nor the day of the concert. We did not play together on it very well, neither did we stay together. From the high school band, “The Pink Panther” was a little sketchy in a few spots, especially after the solos.
However, when it comes to clinical, I wanted to continue my learning experience without stopping because I love it so much. So as usual, I always feel so excited and looking forward to my clinical days. Every clinical experience is very unique for me and so does my patients. This
My life has changed, I won’t stop trying until i reach to my goals. I have been through the good and bad times, sometimes i get tired and wanted to give up but my coach’s words inspired me to do better. Without him, I would already gave up and never get to experienced this

It was around the time of my freshman year, I was 14 years old, and that’s when I began to set my mind to certain things. In the past I had been swimming on a year-round team competitively, then when it came to my freshman year I joined high school swim as well. I always thought to myself that I wasn’t good enough and I could never win, or at best make a section time. However, later on that season, I realized I was good enough, because I believed in myself and set my mind to win and did not give up, and eventually my times immensely improved.
For many years I have been known for being a very talented athlete. But what many people do not know is that I was once in the Elba Marching band. Being in the band has taught me a lot of things, like reading music, discipline and organization. The most interesting thing about the band was that we had to learn how to read music. At first this was a challenge for me, but I soon got the hang of it.
Out of all the things I would do in high school, nothing would impact me more than joining the North Rangers Marching Band. It would give me more skills than any other aspect of my life that would prepare me for a future and allow me to evolve from a shy child to an adult with skills that prepared me for my future. I went into high school as a shy kid, with no true direction, at least until I discovered my schools marching band. Although coming in two years behind most of me peers, I knew that this was where I was meant to be, and with that, my mind was set and I was determined. Throughout the next two years, I would face countless difficulties with this that felt at times like tests of my willpower and what this band meant to me, but luckily I would push through, and in the end, would be left with a stronger person.
I’m at home on the high school parking lot. It’s the only space the administration grudgingly affords our marching band, and yet it’s ours. The band family lives and thrives off people supporting each other, we are there for each other when no one else is. I was elected by this family to be their band president last spring, and I have been completely changed. Despite the flashy title, I am still just one member of this 140 strong group, and I am still pushing to fulfill the responsibility placed on my shoulders.
