Well, my friends. I usually try and ignore true ignorance, but this one
caught my eye.

First is the article about the physical demands of our activity.


THEN, come the response from Mr. Jim Rome.


For those with a little time, and the ability to put a few sentences
together - he should hear from 'our world'

Simple respect - shame he doesn't understand that one.

Pass it around - and let him, AND ESPN hear from some you!!!

 Hey fellow band geeks. Been playing trumpet since 4th grade, love it! I go to a small school w/ one band. We have 50 people in it, and i get really frustrated when people dont take it as seriously as i do. Naturally i'm the band music coordinator, and i'm going to be tresuer (cant spell) next year. Hoping to get in touch with the music community outside Smalltown, USA. Like my director says, "BAND IS LIFE".

Band Camp [18 Sep 2007|06:37pm]

[ mood | awake ]

My old band camp was really really bad. By bad I mean dirty. All the games involved oatmeal, chocolate sauce, tapioca pudding, flour and your body and either consuming gross foods or rubbing them on your body. The most disgusting weeks of my life, but SO much fun.
I go to an arts school now and my band is so bad. It's embarassing! My band teacher gives us music I could have played in grade 6. But I'm still a big nerd. I practice my flute every night.

What games do you guys play at your band camps? Ours are just at our high school. One of my favorites is this one where you have to make a picture out of your section's instruments. For us sousaphones it's always hard... we always end up making a flower or spiral. But this year we made AN ELEPHANT! I diagram...ed it because we didn't get a picture. :(

And today for our second (friday/saturday) only band camp we played team charades where each team had to make themselves into something and one team member had to guess. HERE'S WHAT WE MADE (we won!)

Amazing.Collapse )

We also play "I love band kids...", Steal the King's Keys, Duck Duck Goose (with a sponge), Secret Leader, Human Pretzel, then unity games which are just a bunch of minigames... and typical relays.

This morning I came across an article written about my school's band room.
I guess it just speaks for itself, here:
Highland High School band room trashed

I'm not a member of the band any more, but needless to say, I'm pretty pissed.

alright question [26 May 2007|07:27pm]

[ mood | weird ]

Is there anyone that was in band in High school, but didn't do it right away in college?
Because I'm going to a community college this fall, and I won't be able to join band or anything.
But I really want to do something with band again, once I get settled and go to a real school.
How should I keep up with my music? should I take private lessons or anything like that.
any help would be much appreciated.

Marching Band [24 Jan 2007|04:56pm]

Out of curiosity.

What did ya'll play for Marching Band season?

We played A Tribute to Jim Morrison and the Doors. Something I originally thought wouldn't work out, cause I mean, a marching band, playing some of that old school rock. But it was truly awesometastic.

concert songs? [23 Jan 2007|07:22pm]

I honestly wasn't expecting so many people to respond to my last post. :) Anyway, what songs are you all playing for concert season? And are you going on tour to any festivals? You can just post the names of your songs, and you can listen to them at jwpepper.com! I just think it'd be cool to see what level all of the bands are at.

yeah chairs! [23 Jan 2007|06:13pm]

Post your chair and instrument.

I'm first flute, second chair. :)

Oh, and for marching I was third chair.
Our section leader is amazing, and always gets first chair, so this one girl and I are always going for second chair. She got it for marching, I narrowly beat her for concert.
There are only 8 flutes in our band, though. All juniors or seniors.
