    Marching Band

    • 1033 Words
    • 5 Pages

    amongst my peers who were two to four years older than me. I did not know where I sat, and I’m surrounded by strangers. It was the first day of marching band. I man up to the problem, and ask another tuba player where I sat, she pointed with a smile. I put my stuff down, and with the equal beats of a wood block, this senior in the band says let's get set. I have no idea what any of that means. I am feeling self conscious, nervous, and clueless with what the day will bring me. I followed the rest of the band outside, and we started just walking with rhythm. For example if the song was fast then we would walk fast, to the beat of the song. I just lined up in the low brass section…

    • 1067 Words
    • 4 Pages

    To be in a marching band, one has to almost become one with the band. The instrument played is not a single aspect, but a part of a much larger whole that must be comfortable and confident together. When I first joined the band, I was not one of the more comfortable and confident people that fit in with everyone else. Most all band members are loud and proud of who they are, compared to myself, who always hid behind others and hated being the center of attention. However, almost everyone has…

    plethora of notes in my opinion. But once I joined middle school band, that all changed. Sometime during sixth grade, I had the sudden epiphany that I need to pursue music for as long as possible, because it felt special. It still does.

When I began my junior year, I was made co-clarinet section leader with, someone who I considered my friend, Crystal, a senior at the time.…
