Symphonic & Marching Band - Class of '15

I am currently a sophomore Cyber Forensics and Information Security major at Robert Morris University.  I was a 4-year saxophone player in marching band and an oboist in symphonic band.

Band has been a great influence on my life.  The biggest impact is that it always reminded me that I could still do better.  We were always reminded that there is no point in practicing to just be mediocre, and I have been able to take that lesson with me in everything that I do.  I know the reward of working to be as successful as I can be, not just so I'm "good enough”.

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.
