Hi fellow sax-playin kiwi seeds!!!
Your mod chick here. Its been a while since a posting has been made, and since our mod dude is away for part of the week *to see an awesome band live...lucky* I've decided to post. Here we go:
-Its kiwi kuestion time once again.
What kind of band program does your school have? Like, is your band prog. more of the rehearse a million times for very few concerts a year, or are you involved on a more competitive level with other schools at Band Reviews? Do you like the program you belong to, and why? If not, what would you change or like to see change?
-Also, any big trips you've done with your band that created the band experience more fun or memorable? Any you'd like to do?
Mine was one with learning marching in the fall, and 3 band reviews, and then in the spring came the competitions with marching, concert, and jazz all in one *in different cities* up against many different schools. I loved the competitiveness, but people were very nice to each other *except for this one time...* and didn't take it to a mean level or anything *again, expect for this one time...*. I liked the program. Honestly, it was all I knew, and I assumed most programs were the same, til I met other band peeps from other cities and states and realized there were so many different programs. It was still fun though. Good memories.
As far as big trips go, I've been to Disneyland and Canada, and both were awesome experiences. I wouldn't trade them for anything. I would have, however changed the date we went to canada. We came back the day before finals and were "supposed" to study while on the trip. Ha, yeah right.
Alright, its your turn sax peeps. Answer away!!
