These band kids put in tons of hours. They go to school an hour early to practice and then have band as their 1st hour class. That equals 2 hours of marching/playing in the morning.
There are sectionals for an hour or two after school once or twice a week.
On Tuesday nights of a home football game there is practice from 6-8. For home football games they are at the school at 4:00 until after the game, around 10:00.
And there are several band competitions coming up. And fundraisers like car washes.
amazingly Dustin somehow balanced band and soccer last year
