Yup... My last highschool band camp (as a student)... It was so much fun and I learned so much more about trumpet, brass, marching, people, leadership, EVERYTHING!!! It was so much fun, way better than my last two years. My senior year is going to be so awsome, I can already tell. My trumpet section is great, as is the rest of the band, and drumline, and guard, and pit, I'm so excited for this year! Anyways, I just wanted to say hello and that I'm back and that I had such a great time. Band Camp was so differant this year as a section leader and it really gave me a whole new perspective on band, music, leadership, and even life. It was really awsome to have all the new kids in band looking up to me and calling me their role model and whatnot. One of my new trupeters told me that these last 2 weeks were the best 2 weeks of his whole life and it was all partly due to me. It was so amazeing to know that people look up to you like that. Its just so amazeing. All during the summer I was sort of dissapointed because our band didn't look that great on paper, we're about half the size as we were last year (200+ members), this year we have 113 total, and thats not very big. But the first time we played together with winds, perc, and guard... it was unbelievable! We've only been playing for about 2 weeks and we sound like we did last year at finals. I'm really excited about band this year. Ok, so yeah, I should stop writting now because I could go on for hours, but I should really stop. So yeah, I just wanted to let everyone know I'm back and what a great time I had. Lots of it too is because of what I have leared from the people here on TM that I was able to take to my band, so thanks for that.
