For those of you followers who don’t know, yes, I am in marching band. Specifically drumline. It’s the most amazing experience I know and I wish more people would understand what kind of work gets put into programs like this. For most months out of the year (including a winter season), drumline is my life. It’s an activity that combines athletic ability, mental fortitude, and musical skill. We work from July till October at building and fine tuning a product that lasts only 8-9 minutes.
All those hundreds of hours of work put into the show focus down to that one moment when you find yourself in front of an audience and judges and you prove to them that this is who you are.
This is what you’re made of.
That’s what I live for.
