Hadley Band Students Engage with Professional Composer

The Hadley Jr. High 8th Grade Band had the opportunity to work with composer Randall D. Standridge in a virtual clinic setting on Wednesday, March 23. Mr. Standridge is widely known for his excellent compositions for elementary, middle and high school bands. The 8th Grade Band is currently learning two of his pieces, Cha'La and Brave Spirit. Mr. Standridge listened to the band’s performance and offered constructive feedback. He also spoke to the cultural significance and creation of the piece, as well as his life as an active composer and clinician. Ms. Tribley and Mr. Cooper would like to thank the Hadley PTA for making this unique experience possible for the students.
