The Great Trombone Encouragement

The decade of 2020 has been rough. This two-part disaster film has had its ups and downs, but one of the biggest stress relievers for any good lad is marching band, or so we thought. Turns out the stress from 2020 carried over into marching band. As the Trombone section leader, I was supposed to make sure that the section of ten trombone players was always happy and getting their things done. While I was skilled in getting things done, the enthusiasm was lacking. I don't deserve full credit for this. One of the band captains, my friend Matthew, was also in the section. We worked together to come up with many ways to get people inspired, including a chant, mentorship, and just overall having fun, and it worked. By the end of the marching season, we went from a dozen high school kids to a family of sorts. :)
