If you don't want to comment, then don't. We all have the right to exercise our freedom of speech. Congrats again Brooke, this thread is about you and the GHS band not Mr Clendenon as he has made it seem. The program needs you Brooke, I will always be a supporter of the GHS band.

One burning question, Clendenon. Why is it you have such negative things to say about Pete Hodges when you had your nose so far up his arse it wasn't even funny? And you HAD NOTHING to do with the program until your kids reached high school. Jeez, I made no accuisations, just said you LOOKED like something.

Wow, wow, and wow!#1 Congrats to you Brooke! I am proud of you and excited all at the same time. The section leader who posted has more maturity than intheknow or DC 3 or whatever the screen name is.

This thread is about Brooke and the GHS Band, not anyone else's accomplishments. It seems that DC 3 was trying to take a stab at ITK and ITK took a stab right back. If u can't take it don't dish it out and start a different thread.

Hodges was a great director, Price was more for middle school, and I think Brooke will make us all proud. I hope my kids want to be "band geeks" like their Mommy. LOL! Go Devils!

I gave lessons before my kids were in beginner band.
Years before that in Knoxville. I had a talk with Brooke today and I explained at the moments Hodges
was rude and hateful. I wanted everything up front.
Now......I want topix to remove all my comments.

I agree with you about Paul Hinman. Very fine Band Director. Still a personal friend in the area of Drum Corps. I enjoyed his band after I left UT.
Sanderbeck is a first class percussion instructor.
BTW....I did not "Try" for UT.....I was invited. Same
as Brooke. You wanna compare Chops? Come on over and I'll play and you can. I play only once a year. If you doubt my technique ask Brooke.

I am PROUD to say that I am a GHS Band Alumni! I also feel very fortunate that we have had band directors who have supported us, the students...Pete Hodges, David Price, and now Brooke Rhea. These directors/educators have given us and our children a top notch music education. Being a winner is not always a part of that package and I am amazed at the people who think that being the best is the most important part of our children's success...Thanks goes to Pete Hodges, David Price, and Brooke Rhea who have taught us and our children the importance of a MUSIC EDUCATION!!!!!!!!!!

For the record, I am a Senior Section Leader in the Greeneville High School "Pride of the Devils" Marching Band this year. This means, I have been under the direction of both David Price and Brooke Rhea. And as this is my 7th year taking private lessons from Peter Hodges, I am extremely familiar with the aspects of this discussion. Ms. Rhea was the best choice for the position at the high school, and anyone who disagrees needs to look at her credentials and see how long she has been in love with our program. Also, for those of you who think it is right for you to post insulting comments about former band directors here at the high school, how dare you? ALL previous directors deserve the upmost respect from the community for their continued loyalty to this band program, and I am ashamed that anyone, especially a member of our own instructional staff, would say other-wise. As for the band this year, I can assure everyone that our drive to succeed has never been stronger, and that we will continue to entertain as well as strive to excell in competition, as we always have. This is supposed to be a conversation for praise for the upcoming band season as well as excitement for our new director, not a place to argue over which former band director is best. As a student of all three recent directors, let me say that they are all three great colleagues, and each has continually pushed the band to new levels of excelence. I hope to see you all supporting the band like you should be this fall.
Brown Bear??? Is this you? And I can honestly say from experience that the cause for the decline in our bands ability to perform is purely based on the fact that half of the kids in the band either don't want to be in it, or don't want to do the work necessary to be good. I don't how many times we've lost precious practice time waiting for certain people to do what they are supposed to.

This poor soul thinks his opinion counts. And, yes, I know exactly who he is. And, since I have left my name, I'm certain some of you will know who I am. What a sad existence.... to blame his problems or his children's decisions on an exceptionally GOOD MAN!

I helped all 3....Hodges had zero personality and was exceptionally rude, even to staff. David was nice to work with and as far as discipline, well that starts at home. Brooke will be fine and yes I'll be helping there again and with David at Tusculum.My kids did not major in Music because the disliked Hodges 45 minute beratings over a 5 min problem. He had some issues. Look back on some threads and you'll see that a Drummer is said to be selling pills or whatever. Now THATS a problem.

Mr. Clendenen, I thought you weren't commenting anymore. I find it hilarious that YOU, of all people, are calling anyone else rude and hateful. But, then, of course, who better to say it than you. Commenting about a FAR SUPERIOR INDIVIDUAL does not make you look better as a person, only that much worse.

I would like to say as a band student that Mrs. Brooke Rhea Williams is an amazing band director. AND I'd like to add that there are NO drummers selling pills. They're too much of goody goodies to do so
