Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 34 People

    Best experience ever!

    I was drum major this last season for my marching band. I was a junior and did it all by myself. I am trying out again this year for my senior year and I can't wait! Being drum major helped me realize I want to teach. Especially music and special education.
