Here is what some of our 2017 students have to say about being in the Crimson Regiment Marching Band: (anonymous)
1) Before band I was nothing, good at nothing and just a nobody. Band gave me a chance to express myself and grow as a person, leader, and musician. I have done it for 4 years and I plan to make music education my life. I owe my everything to music.
2) Before band I felt like no one. I had no one. All of my friends left me in middle school. Joining band made me more extroverted and proud of who I am, more motivated to learn. Everything I know now I have learned in the past year. I didn't even know what trilling was. Band is my life, my family. Music is one of my main passions. I have become more open minded and caring. I thank everyone in band for giving me this opportunity to try my best and be the best. Thank you truly.
3) Band is a very dedicated sport and everyone matters. I joined and if I didn't I'd be a completely different person. Band changes you and has helped me grow to be someone I am proud of today.
4) There's way too much for this piece of paper. Here goes nothing: I learned that I can commit to an activity and the people I do it with. I learned that I can talk to people, find common ground, and make friends. I learned that I love music. I gained a second family. I'm gaining the ability to lead. I can actually budget time, and time to myself is more than time wasted; it's recharging for another adventure.
5) Band to me means being more social, developing myself as a leader and as a good individual, and being in the prime of my life even through the long, hard, tedious days.
6) Being in band is difficult. You have to learn 4 things at the same time, marching, music, body, technique and awareness I guess. Also some of the best bands don't have the best instruments, as a low reed I probably have a 50 year old instrument that has never been repaired but overall bands awesome.
7) Being in the band means a lot to me because of the memories I make and the people I meet. These will last a lifetime for me.
8) I came from a small middle school to LHS and I was very afraid because I knew almost no one going into high school. Band helped me with that. I made friends quickly and really felt like I belonged. By the time school started, I was already set with knowing so many great people. I don't even want to think of how terrible and scary high school would be without band.
