I have seen the show and it has promise. If they can clean it up and the drumline/color guard improve, they can make Area Finals....don't know about State though.

it will take hard work as a TEAM!!! Kind of disappointed that some kids are still bullying underclassmen because they are upperclassmen/section leaders. You all should be examples to them not there to ridicule them. It takes hard work and practice as a TEAM! I heard the judges say some brass are trying to play loud and they are straining to play. He was looking at the trumpets. It is not about how loud you are it is about how you sound as a whole. Don't try and blast your horn because you think you are that great cause you also need work. If you are going to pick on people don't run and cry and say you feel threatened when someone defends them because you were the one acting tough to be a bully.

When I was section leader I always joked around with my section and it a privilege to be the LEAD trumpets! That why playing loud is a good thing if you play loud as a 2nd or 3rd part it's dumb because no cares all they like is the HIGH PLAYIN LEADS!!! So if whoever you are talking about is getting bullied its because the LEADS want the section to be a certain way and that person isn't cooperating! So in my opinion I would tell this underclassman to listen because if It comes down to the band not making state then you never know how the LEADS will react they might start telling people stuff if they don't like them so just tell this underclassman to just listen to the leads because I was in their shoes once!

Your band is only as good as your 2nd and 3rd part players can play. Why wouldn't you want your inner parts (2nd/3rd) to play well and loud. If they sound good, the whole section sounds good. Just ask your director about this!

The HS band here in Pearsall isnt what it used to be :( I moved away for 20 years and I just returned back to this town 3 years ago and I couldnt believe how bad everything has gotten. Even football in this town doesnt seem important like it used to back then.

You need to give respect to earn it. The judges weren't talking about the 2nd and 3rd parts they were talking about the lead parts. That is who he was pointing to. You do not need to bully to help them learn where does that get you- no where! You said yourself you joked around with your section. They do not do that instead they ridicule them. As an underclassmen I would listen more to the ones that treated you with respect then to the ones that put you down. When you earn section leader you remember how you wanted to be treated and that is how you treat others. I know some of those kids and I know that the parents have done better than that at raising them.

Class of 2003

Band year 2002 was the last year that the band rocked!! we got 6th at state but it was better than the band had done in years... we made it cause we were disciplined and actually into BAND.. Not just for the free 100. Kids now days dont understand how being a band student is a great accomplishment. Some just want the free grade like I said before. You kids need to learn whats its like to actually EARN that Free GRADE!!! Long hours and determination that you WANT TO MAKE STATE!!

The 2012 band members have been working really hard and long hours. It is not that the band is any weaker than in the past. The fact is that most of the band they compete with are much better than the time or year you competed.

Mnm I've seen their show its not really good. Especially the color guard. I knew they were going to make state in 2010 and I definitely don't think they'll make it this year. Compared to rio hondo and port Isabelle

I heard Fredricksburg show isn't even done so I doubt they are even any good this year.
