Below are a few short rehearsal clips as we continue to prep for our trip to UND by running through' our pieces as often as we can in order to: a. learn the notes b. build up a breathing endurance c. strengthening our lip and face cheeks for the upcoming pep band season d. simply enjoying these 'workout' rehearsals! (you have come amazingly far in just one year since our last UND trip.) The time has come: to work on posture; tune together; eliminate those remaining klunkers; learn a few more new notes and fingerings; shine up that 'break' clarinets; strengthen that embouchure, brass, practice those tough rudimental drummings percussion; , polish the easier pieces and 'selfie-practice' those new difficult pieces! We have a huge pep band season coming up just in a few weeks! BE READY! It should be a 'blast of excitement' this year as we try to spark up the crowd and push our team to a winning record!
If there is anything Rachel loves more than her saxophone, it is her life with her horses. Well, there might be a few more things she loves more than her saxophone but at least I know she is very good - excellent - in fact, she is awesome with her horse riding AND her saxophone playing!
