What is your favorite musical moment in high school? - One of my favorite moments was actually my freshman year and the first day I played with the High School Band. We were working on pep band music and the first song we played was very fast paced with a ton of high notes that I didn’t know how to play. It took me by so much surprise because I hadn’t ever played like that and I didn’t know what I was doing. Once I got help and got it down, I was so proud.

What words of wisdom would you share with the underclassmen music students? - Make sure you watch Walker.
Congratulations, Alyssa! Thank you for your dedication to the band and for sharing your musical talents with us for all of these years!!
