  3. As my high school years are slowly coming closer to an end and college is nearing, I was wondering, what majors did y'all study? I notice a good number of parents on here and so I'm curious, did anyone major in music? Also, were any of y'all in college band? If so, how was it and how does it differ from high school?
  4. I would just like to give a big thanks and all my appreciation to txbands.com, although I only discovered these forums two years ago, and only officially made an account late last year, reading all the posts and forums on here has been one of my favorite pastimes during marching season. I'm not leaving or anything, I just wanted to express my gratitude that a website for marching band lovers, especially Texas bands, exists and is actively used. With all that, I'm so excited for this upcoming marching season and look forwards to all the shows and predictions!

  9. So I started this thread just so we could brag about our own bands show this year and maybe spread some love. I'll start with mine (Poteet) (4:20) This had to be my favorite show out of my 4 years. We've embraced change and are moving on up imo. I loved the technicality in the show for all sections and also loved the amount of sound we were able to produce this year. Wasn't the best recording b/c they wouldn't let us record in the press box so it's at a low-angle and the crowd noise is too much at times but arguably our best performance of the year.

  12. Recently saw them at a contest and was shocked to see that they've never been to state, so my question is, in 2015 do you see them making a run at state?
  13. My name is Emma. I started playing trumpet in eighth grade after I moved to Texas. Now I've been playing for three years, and I'm a high school sophomore. Here's the dealio. I practice 90+ minutes a day, 30-40 minutes in the band hall before school, 30 minutes during study hall, and 30 minutes after marching band before I do my homework. I keep a practice log that details what I've practiced, how long I practiced it, and what I need to work on. I practice long tones, scales, Clarke studies, lip slurs, and various other exercises before moving on to my actual music for band. I take private lessons for 30 minutes every Tuesday with a guy who has a PhD, and I'm just gonna assume this PhD is for music performance. I go to all the sectionals. I follow every direction anyone could ever give me. But here's the thing, despite this constant hard work and practice, I'm still fifth to last chair in my 25-person section. I'm second chair in my school's last band. Because of my placement, I'm seen as a lazy slacker, and the rest of my section treats me with no respect. I, along with the other players in cadet band, weren't even invited to our section party or allowed to buy a section shirt. What's wrong with me? What am I doing wrong? Sometimes I just feel like giving up; my director says that all you can do is work hard and you will succeed, but I guess it just doesn't apply to me. But I love band more than anything, so even if I do suck, I'm not gonna actually give up. Sorry for this emo rant-y thing. Basically, fellow trumpet players, do you have any life-saving advice that can help me finally be good at playing music and be respected by the rest of the band?
