Wow I can't believe it's been a year since I have posted a blog!!! I guess I kind of forget about this thing. Not only that but I guess I stay pretty busy!!
Where do I begin... Well Erath's indoor drumline came out of a 8 year dorment period. I worked ensemble and wrote the show for this small group of dedicated musicians. It was a pleasure. The group did really well for its first year back! They won all but one show and were class champions at the Gulfcoast Regional championships. Great job, guys!
Then I moved out to Concord for all days. It was a total BLAST to be back and continue to build the relationships that had rekindled last year after a 3 year hiatus from the corps. I can't believe that next summer will be my third year teaching the Blue Devils!! I still wake up every morning and pinch myself. The show this summer was absolutely incredible!! The members grew so much over the course of the summer. I remember feeling really worried about the season during the first few weeks of all days. Trust me when I say that these members came a long.... LONGGGG way. I can't wait to see what the design team has in store for next year!!!
Now it's band season.... for those in the south Louisiana area you won't want to miss Erath's show this year... some will love it and some will hate it. There won't be many inbetween. That's about all I will reveal about the show until it's debut.
The members at Erath have a much higher drive and hunger for excellence than they have the past few years. It's very refreshing to see that from this group again. I can't wait to see where these young people push themselves this year.
This year I took on a lot of work. I'm surviving and thriving under the pressure. I feel like I've learned so much over the past few years and I'm loving being able to put that knowledge to work in the form of my designs (as well as my teaching :)) I can't wait to finish this blog so I can get back to work! With that being said, it's time to open up Pyware!
I hope everyone effected by Hurricane Isaac stays safe!!
