    So the guard hands down won skit night which was definitely needed after today's last rehearsal block. Not that it was bad necessarily, but definitely a lot of work.   We put all of the work with drill on the fly with the band in order to do a full run of movements I & II at the end of rehearsal... in the dark. But nonetheless, it's amazing to start seeing a final ...

    It's skit night!!!   Tonight after rehearsal the sections will perform (hopefully humorous) skits for the rest of the band. I think that helps the day get by more quickly for the band.

I have seen so many students ...

    Skit night takes planning and preparation. For about a month, the sections brainstorm ideas and analyze the merits of each.   And then at the last minute, they change their mind and do something completely different.     The skits almost perfectly reflect the personality of the instrument. The drum majors used the time to give instructions. Guard (once again) found a way to work doing the splits into their ...

    It was 9:12 last night and the kids were just coming off the field. They squeeze every bit of marching they can into the day.   Mr. Steele gave them the summary & pep talk before dismissal.   "I want you to know that while we often run this late, you won’t always be marching in the dark like this. The school has lights…”   School lights aren’t the only thing that keeps ...
