My 7th Grade Band Year
By: Marilyn Benedict
My Band Accomplishments
Another accomplishment is I went to the solo contest at Byron Nelson and played a very challenging song for me at that time called Poco Waltz. I successfully got superior on that solo. I am also very proud of the judges comments, she said"You are going to be a star!"
At one of the most recent concerts I got an award called the musicianship award. Also, at the assembly we most recently had, I got a medal for band student of the year award.
My strengths and weeknesses
Some of my strengths are probably being a leader, reading notes, and holding a still and steady note. Some of my weaknesses are probably writing out rhythms and playing all my scales.
My future band plans are to be a strong leader in wind ensemble as an eighth grader. Also, I want to go to a college that can teach me all the instruments to be a band director. My goals for next year are to be a strong leader and be a good role model for younger kids.
Overall Band Experience and more
My favorite memories of band were probably the sectionals, and first meeting all the band directors. I also loved getting to know all my band classmates because they made me feel like I belonged.
I learned about myself with the way I work with others. I work very well with others. Also, I can play solo's and be as good as I am today. In 4th grade I would of never thought of myself to be where I am today. I have also learned that I want to be a band director when I get older.
