The Band is in Full Swing!
Student Author: Mason P.
From band camp in July to school starting in August, band hasn’t given up! Putnam County R1 marching band is coming along quite nicely in drill, with famous music including Batman, Superman, and Heathens. We are tying up all loose ends to give it our best for our performances, with a big thank you to Mrs. Booth, Mrs. Perkins, and all of the band and guard members who have helped in tremendous ways.
Morning practices start bright and early at 7:30 am on the field, ready to rock and roll! From there, we work for an hour and 15 minutes! We work on not only music but marching technique. In addition to that, we also have to perfect teamwork and counting together, all while stepping off at the same time. During an interview with senior clarinet player, Daysha C., she stated that, “Although band can be stressful, it pays off in the end, we have done so well in the past three seasons, I am excited to see what we can do as a team this year, positive minds always pay off in the end.”
Being a band member myself, I always loved the experience and hard work that the whole team brings to the table, we learn something new from each other every day and it just makes us all closer.
If you would like to see all of the band's hard work put together please join us at a home football game on Friday nights or any of our other scheduled events, schedules can be found on the school website, or the band website linked through the school page.
