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!
