When we start our recruiting process for the following year, we have several questions that seem to come up. You too may have these questions. In order to make it easier for you, we have posted them here:
Q: I really enjoy sports, can I do band?
A: YES! There are no known activities at Comeaux High School that are so conflicted with band, that students cannot participate in both. Although based on the activity, some concessions are made, however participation in band is always possible!
Q: I would like to try other things. Can I do that
and still be in band?
A: ABSOLUTELY! Our after school clubs and activities are to numerous to mention, but are there for students who would like to experience as many things as they can. Whatever the circumstance, there are numerous options for you.
Q: Do I have to attend all the camps?
A: Yes, and this is actually for your benefit. In order for you to feel prepared for all that we do, we have these camps in order to help you prepare for a successful year. It's also a chance for such a large group to bond and get to know one another. As the largest student organization on campus, it makes no sense to belong to the group if you don't know others who participate in it with you.
Q: Do I have to participate in marching band?
We believe that when you join the Comeaux Band Program, you commit to everything we do. We look at it in the same aspect as if one asked "If I became a cheerleader, do I have to cheer for football games? I only like basketball." In order to do our best in all performances, we need all students to participate.
Q: I've never marched. Is this a problem? I'm
a little concerned.
Your concern is natural. There are tens of thousands of students across the country that begin this activity for the first time every year. We will literally take you step by step through the learning process, from your first steps, all the way to getting from one place to the next on the field. Rest assured that by the time band camp ends... you'll know exactly what you're doing.
