My name is Jessica Hadish and I am service chair this semester! Last Wednesday Jules, Christina, Kelsey, Sara, Kristyn, Elyse, and I got to help out with the Indian Spring Middle School District Band Auditions. We helped the kids get all their music pieces together, know what scales they needed to play, and help them be not so nervous. It was so amazing to get to see young kids with a passion for music and it really helped give me a good reminder about why we do what we do. I can’t really describe the feeling of realizing that it was quite a few years ago that I was in those youngsters shoes, but it made me feel old for sure. I am hoping that we can continue helping out the band programs in Waco and surrounding areas because it is so important that kids stay connected to music and help the fine arts thrive. Allowing the kids to see that loving music and band doesn’t have to stop after high school and that it can be FUN is something that I hope we are able to show them by getting involved!
