Last week, our North Raleigh Honor Band held its first sessions led by our fabulous high school sectional leaders from the Millbrook High School band program. Our sectional leaders offered drills and techniques to the percussionists (led by Ethan Styll), ensemble insight to the woodwinds (led by Carissa Petzold), tone production tips to the low brass (led by Jeremy Petersen), and music practice to the trumpets and french horns (led by Hannah Scanlon). By all accounts, both our middle school musicians and high school mentors thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Music Is Instrumental, Inc. is dedicated to creating performance and mentorship opportunities for advanced musician/students of all ages in the Triangle area. Our first sessions led by our high school sectional leaders is just one of hopefully many milestones on our journey.
Special thanks goes out to Millbrook High School Band Director, Tom Jenner, for helping us secure our rehearsal space!
