And if you have, it would be nice to hear your responses on your experiences of being part of a band. Also, if you have been in a drum corp... I have alway wanted to be in a drum corp but its been complicated and I am getting to old to be in one... thanks
Yes, I would love to be in a Drum Corp. I am actually trying out for both the Cavaliers and Phantom Regiment. Right now I am in my high school marching band. We are getting ready for our last competition on saturday at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. We have gotten two second places, a fourth and a third. We haven't done too well this year, but not terribly bad either. We have improved a lot over the last few weeks so we are expecting a lot on Saturday. Band is a lot of fun, but a lot of hard work. It isn't nearly as easy as people think it is.
EDIT: We had 2 weeks of practice before school started from 8a.m. to 9p.m. Then we practice after school everyday, not to mention the time in class. Class starts at 1:30 and we get out at 5:00.
