Marching Band & Concert Band - Class of '15

I was a 4-year trombone player for the marching band and concert band.

Currently I am a sophomore accounting major at California University of Pennsylvania.

I would say being in band had two huge impacts on my life.  First, it gave me great confidence in anything I do.  Being on a stage and on the field, you know all eyes are on you.  Being the center of attention so much makes it normal and much easier to do in the future.  The second impact would be the leadership skills I've developed.  Even though I wasn't a drum major or in any technical leadership role, I felt that people followed my lead, and that helped me develop the leadership skills that I still use to this day.

Marching Band - Class of '14

My experience with the Moon Area Junior and Senior High school band was more than just learning to play instruments such as the keyboard and clarinet, it was about a way to learn about teamwork or working with others. These shared wonderful and unforgettable experiences over time have built long lasting relationships and fun friendships. The long rehearsals built a foundation for discipline now that I am in college by establishing good time management principles. In addition, I represented both my school and community in a respectful manner at all of the performances and competitions. It taught me to be courteous in all situations, from practice to football games. Therefore, I gained valuable experience in skills that reach far beyond musical notes and instruments that will have many positive impacts as I mature into my adulthood.
