Although students are forced to be at home due to COVID-19 precautions, students and organizations such as the marching band have found a way to work around it.

The band has been practicing their music at home and learning from home. The entire band gets together and has online practices through Google Meets or Zoom. 

“We practice by listening to our instructor play while we follow along. Every week he’ll give us an assignment to record ourselves playing our instrument,”  percussionist Jacob Hernandez said.

While playing music online can be difficult, band members still have to keep up with their music.

 “Practices at home have been a new way of learning. “It has been challenging in band but it has helped me grow as a musician, that’s for sure,” clarinetist David Garcia said.
