I currently have a son who is a junior, a son who is a freshman, and a daughter who just joined the color guard as a seventh grader. Band has been a wonderful, challenging, rewarding experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything. My oldest has been marching since the eighth grade and it’s been amazing to see the growth in him over the last four years. Band has given him the opportunity to develop and transform into a confident and mature young adult and has given him a discipline that will help him as he goes forward in college and beyond. I’m thrilled that my younger two now have the same opportunity to learn the skills and values that are central to the FM band and will allow all three of them to carry on the tradition of this wonderful organization. This isn’t just a band, this is a family.
