I truly enjoyed my time here at String Theory High School. Although I tend to whine and complain, I am glad that I made the choice to spend my my high school years in this amazing institution.
One thing that I will miss at this school has to be the band. Being apart of the band has honestly been a blessing for me. I was given the opportunity to expand and perfect my talent...and I did.
This photo was taken during the band's second time participating in Temple's High School Band Festival. This has to be one of the most memorable and life changing things I have ever done.
One of the songs played we played that day.
Along with perfecting my talent, I was given the opportunity to become a leader in the band, which totally changed me as person, and more importantly, a musician.
This photo was taken during the band's master class with Temple University's Dr. Matthew Brunner. He is the Assistant Professor of Instrumental Music and Director of Athletic Bands in the Boyer College of Music and Dance.
Another song that we played that day.
As many people like to say, band is a family. From the start of the band and further on, each member works together to help each other grow and become more efficient with ones own craft. While doing so, you begIn to form a bond with many, if not every member in the ensemble. And looking ahead towards June 7th, when I walk down that aisle to began my journey into the world, I know that I will walk away from this band with lifelong memories and a handful of lifelong friends.
The last photo taken together during last years Band Festival.
A third song that we played that day. This is one of my all time favorite songs written by my favorite composer, Frank Ticheli. Another band actually played this song the previous year, and many of us fell in love with the song the moment they started playing.
Now as my senior year will soon be ending, I can say that I am proud of everything that I accomplisHed. I gained friends. I lost friends. I built lifelong relationships with adminadstraitrs and teachers. I was even able to become a role model for many of the younger students here at THE school. And as I look back, I fell that I've done very thing that I could in the time given, and i know, Ten years later, i Won't regret any of it.
This is just a temporary hell, not a permanent one.
