College Marching Bands

My daughter is in her first year of college marching band this year, performing in the Brigham Young University marching band. She loves it! After choosing not to march in high school, we were very surprised when she decided as a college sophomore to give marching band a try. She was hoping to see more of the football games, but she said she is too busy as a band member at each game to get to see much of the playing on the field. It is still a lot of fun, and she has made great friends already.
If you've never seen a college marching band perform, check out some of the great videos on YouTube. Wow, some of those bands can really rock. Or go see a college game if you have a school close by. You'll love it!

For the love of music

Why is it that we all love music? What does it touch in our souls? Granted, we don't all love the same KIND of music, but most everyone I know finds a way to make music a part of their lives, from listening to a classical station to singing in the shower, downloading their latest favorite hit to their iPod, to playing an instrument in marching band or singing in the choir. It seems impossible to go through a day without music at all!

Have you ever stopped to think about the first music in your life? Was it a lullaby sung by your mother, or your Dad humming along to the radio? When did you sing your first song? Music is such a wonderful way to teach things, too. Just set something to a catchy tune, and our brains seem to absorb and hold on that information so much easier. Isn't that why children sing the "A B C Song"? I helped our youngest child memorize his school lunch password by setting it to a simple tune!

What about your first love as a teenager? Is their a certain love song that was "your song"? Or the music you danced to at your wedding; do you still remember it all these years later? Music and love just seem to go together.



Whatever your personal experiences with music have been, I think we can all agree that it is an integral part of our lives.
