Discipline. Teamwork. Camaraderie.
Just a few of the reasons to become a member of the
MAHS Instrumental Music Program.
Selena RossiMarching 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.
Matt DiehlSymphonic & 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.
