At the start of grade 9 I joined the marching band at my new school. After three years of playing the saxophone in a normal school band I assumed everything would be more or less the same. However I quickly learned that marching band was quite different. Being a part of this marching band was one of the first times in my life when I realized that I would have to work hard to achieve just average results. My goals in the marching band were to learn all of my music and marching drills so that I could be a positive addition to the band, without being someone who just hid behind other the other musicians. Although playing one of the many instruments in a marching band doesn’t seem like a big role to some people it actually is very important.
