Practice, Practice, Practice

January 28, 2020

 Practice, Practice, Practice. During a morning rehearsal, percussion section leader, Andrew Horstman (9), keeps tempo as he begins to play. The Marching Band practiced every morning before school, plus two hours after school on Thursdays, along with Band class time. Each band member also spends hours outside of class and practice learning their parts and memorizing music on their own. Charlotte Ervin (10) plays the piccolo and flute and has been a member of band for 5 years. "I like band because of the people and competitions, but it's really stressful trying to get yourself everywhere and learn everything - in the allotted amount of time. We're supposed to have most of our music memorized by the time school starts," Ervin said. Marching Band season ended in October, but almost all band members transfer to Concert Band and/or Jazz Band after the season ends.
