I used to be in a band (before I moved back to Texas) that we had 1 marching band and 1 concert band for the whole program and we were a 4A school. It was insane now that I think about it. And when I moved back and started band here I thought it was weird to have more than 1 concert band.

u march a bassoon?




How weird is it to have a High School Marching Band having someone march the Bass Clarient? Most schools in SoCal dont do that at all.

we grew A LOT this year...

2 piccolos
30+ flutes
30+ clarinets
25 alto saxes
3-5 tenor saxe
2-4 bari saxes

And strangely enough, we don't march bass clarinets. They either switch to clarinet or tenor sax, but if we need them for some sort of woodwind feature, they play it for that.

Haha yeah im REALLY glad were not combining with 7th graders this year. But we will have more woodwinds this year because of the fact that theres no guard this year and thats where most of our flutes are.

As best you can, then pray to God that your eardrums don't burst.
