Music in Your Own Home: Discovery Posts & Practice Routines
Different challenges call for different solutions. Continuing your music education and exploration at home is still possible when so many of us have technology at our fingertips! Please enjoy our new blog posts which will include "Music Discovery" every other day and every Friday an "Album of the Week". This is not just for students, it is also for anyone who is looking to pop in some ear buds to pass the time and experience (usually) a previously recorded live performance. The blog posts will not be a deep dive or study, but rather a quick way for me to share something with you. There will always be links included in the posts for you to deep dive on your own!
SH Winds, Percussion, & Colorguard students please be sure to stay up to date with your music in the Google Drive by continuing your practice routine HERE
5-Time USBands National Champions
Shepherd Hill Marching Band earned their third straight USBands National Championship Title on November 9th, 2019 at USBands Open Nationals at MetLife Stadium. Winning Best Music, Visual, Overall Effect, and Percussion, the Shepherd Hill Marching Band placed 1st with a score of 95.9. This marks the 5th time the band has earned a National Title under USBands/USSBA.
