Name: Rilyn F.
Instrument: Trumpet (his name is Winston)
Grade: 12
Years in Band: 8

What do you enjoy most about being in band?
I enjoy playing trumpet because it gives me happiness. I can’t imagine playing a different instrument…hitting those high notes is what makes my day.

Favorite Band Experience?
My favorite band experience is whenever we get on the marching field, whether it be at a competition or outside at our own home field. Something different and funny happens every time.

What other activities are you involved in?
I am also involved in Robotics and Boy Scouts.

What advice do you have for younger band students?
Practice will always make you better (and its fun!). You don’t improve just by showing up to band every day. You rehearse at school and get better at home.

Tell us something about yourself that otherwise we wouldn’t know or guess.
Apparently I look like Spock…I don’t buy it.
