Symphonic & Marching Band - Class of '13

I was a part of the Moon Area Marching Band from 8th grade to my senior year, and I played the trumpet during that time.  I was a part of Jazz Band II my freshman and sophomore years, and I was a member of the Symphonic Band my junior and senior years.  I did not end up pursuing music in my higher education, but I still thoroughly enjoyed my time in the instrumental music program.  I made a bunch of friends, and I definitely grew in my skills of leadership, cooperation, teamwork, and responsibility.  These skills are just some of many that will be developed while in band.  I continue to utilize them in my everyday interactions with people, work, and life in general.  I graduated from Grove City College in May 2017.

Symphonic & Marching Band - Class of '11

I was a member of Moon’s band for four years, playing trumpet, and loved every minute of it.  There are a lot of ensembles you can participate in:  I was in Symphonic Band, Jazz Band I and Marching Band for my time there.  I also took part in the musicals in the Pit section, Pep Band for basketball games and participated in PMEA Honors, District, Regional and State bands.  Being involved in the music program at Moon molded me into the person I am today.  It’s tough, you learn a lot of life lessons but you also have a great time along the way. I graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2015 majoring in Music Education. I am now a staff member with Moon’s Marching Band and will be attending grad school in the fall.
