"Now I don't say this lightly, but band means everything to me. Band has not only made me a better player and marcher but in fact it has made me a better person. In my four years with the band I've matured, grown, and been stronger than I've ever been, both mentally and physically. The band is my family and through it I've made some amazing friendships. Though it has moved me socially, it has also taught me so much. It has taught me discipline, work ethic, disappointment, perseverance, and most of all it has taught me passion. It has taught me to love what I do, and to do what I love. It has made me want to pursue a career in music. No other organization that I know of has given me so many memories that I hold as fondly as I do with band. And with an explosive tie-die of emotions band runs you life. Your happy, sad, distraught, mad, but once you are at band, that doesn't matter anymore. Because the band is sometimes the only place willing to love you no matter where you are in life. No matter where you're going. And its because of this, we see a division in people, those who loved High School and those who did not. Band, for me, has made the swirling cesspool of idiocy we all know as high school bearable. Fun even. It was the light in the dark and wouldn't take it back or change it for the world. Band teaches, grows, nurtures, binds, and above all else is my family." EA, Junior

"I enjoy the jazz band because I love jazz and think it's a great music genre. The jazz program gives me a better understanding and appreciation for jazz music. Also, I have met a lot of friends who also like jazz and the program itself is a lot of fun" R.C, Senior
