Madison Scouts at Huntsville, AL
I keep getting this question so i’m gonna assume i’m being trolled
so I’m gonna read it another way
dci stands for
dreams turning into reality
and using music to positively influence lives of thousands every summer
go for it.
before I did my dci project in the spring, none of the directors knew I wanted to march. I was too embarrassed and shy about wanting something like that because I don’t see myself a talented woodwind to begin with, and I don’t play a brass or percussion instrument either. if anyone just kinda knew of me, they wouldn’t think I love dci as much as I do. But when I got my project back, I had really encouraging things from my director written inside, which showed me that directors really do care about you, or they at least should. That director has been my biggest critic my whole middle school & high school band career, so if he can believe I can do it, ANYONE can believe you can.
And if they don’t, so what? Prove them wrong. Sometimes we have to be our own supporters when no one else with be. Ask your director for some help. If he marched that long, he’ll most likely promote your participation in the activity regardless of your initial brass talents. Or get a friend that plays brass (preferably quite well & patient) to help you learn.
Good luck! :)
