We’re Midway Through The High School Marching Band Season

I’ve seen the American Pie movies, Lynn my wife has told me stories but high school band wasn’t anything I really paid attention to until now. My son Dylan plays the trumpet in the Edward Little High School marching band as a freshman. He loves it and we love watching him play at the various schools in Maine.

The first time I walked into Edward Little High School’s band room I saw a large picture of Lynn’s band frm the early to mid 90s and a shelf tons of trophies.

Lynn kind or recruited me to be pit crew member for the E.L.H.S marching band.  Maybe better described as the position of a roadie. We help load and unload the instruments off the van and help set up everything on the field and help tear it down etc. I now know the difference between a snare drum and a tenor drum. I also learned the name of the hat with the feather, it’s a plume. It’s work but it’s the least I can do to help.

There is a school from Dover, New Hampshire that is unbelievable, they get four or five out five stars in almost every category in evaluations. Kudos to them. Edward Little is a smaller band and does very well. They gel, have chemistry and enjoy each others’ company and look good on the field and got three stars out five over all tonight.

I hope Dylan continues with marching band next year and through high school. It has given him a new confidence and a few new friends.

Next weekend the competitions are off for the holiday weekend, but the weekend after they’re in Westbrook and Dover, NH. That will be a busy day for Dylan, however, he’s a gamer and will pull through with a smile.
