Alumni Stories

Marching Band & Winter Color Guard - Class of '18

I am grateful to have such fond memories of my high school career thanks to 5 years of being in the MAHS Marching Band as a Color Guard member.  I was Color Guard Captain in my senior year.  I believe that without involving myself in the music program, there is no way I would have created the friendships that I did.  After everything we have been through together, my band friends will be my friends for life.  Band taught me the importance of time management, and it also taught me the significance of working hard in order to achieve my goals.  I am currently majoring in Communication Sciences & Disorders, with a minor in German, and a certification in ASL at the University of Pittsburgh in Oakland.  Even though I did not join Pitt’s marching band, I did join the Moon Band Alumni - my true Band Family.

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 junior 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.
