It has taught me about the dynamic of managing my band as well as the importance of my role in the band program. I have had the opportunity to work with various players of varying skill levels yet manage to bring them all to one accord to help our band receive superior ratings at the state marching band competition. This leadership position has enabled me to work diligently and persistently with my members to help them reach their utmost potential. Thus, slightly making the band director’s job easier. My position has also allowed me to be a positive role model for not only my section, but also the entire band, showing them a pivotal example of what a band student should be inside and out of the band program. I now know that my position as a student leader not only benefited the band director, but the entire band program as a
Through music, many paths are able to come together. Although we come from different backgrounds, we are able to bond over the wonderful gift of music. The connection we have through music makes participating in the band program the most meaningful activity for me. The band program opened up my horizon and made me feel like I finally belonged somewhere. The diversity of the people in the program taught me how to be versatile. The age range amongst the members vary in which in one moment you have to respect and listen to who is in charge, then the next moment your peers are waiting for your orders. Learning to respect and handle being respected is an important lesson I am still learning. The position of power is something that should not go
Firstly, in my Academic Career, I have held a multitude of leadership roles. My sophomore year , I was a class representative for Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America, commonly known as FCCLA. It was my duty to alert members and keep them up to date regarding meetings and activities. As a representative of FCCLA, I learned how to work as a unit leader and a team member.That same school year, I ran for the district office of secretary for FCCLA. The nomination and election process, gave me the opportunity to grow and nurture my leadership abilities. It was eminently challenging; but I learned the importance of discipline and hard work. I accomplished my goal and was nominated Secretary for FCCLA. This office allowed me to meet plenty
As a committed member of the SGA/Leadership class, I was taught to lead by example. I achieved missions to instill values of integrity, passion, and service as I cooperated that into my school and community. The class handed me the opportunity to host school-sponsored events while giving me a hands-on, authentic opportunity to learn and develop leadership skills for the future and put the skills learned into practice through the coordination of planning and implementing events. I was nominated to chair numerous committees. Through delegating tasks, working tight-knit with others, laying a foundation for rules, integrity, and values, I earned credibility. My leadership skills spoke "do as I do" and not "do what I say" which enabled others
Since childhood, I had a chance to develop my leadership and organizational skills through sports and had my school team win many competitions. My school is one of the places where my leadership qualities are valued as I often become a head of many activities, such as staging plays, organizing shows and school trips with my teachers. Being a leader gives me the opportunity to work in a team and consider my peers’ ideas to make our plans creative and enjoyable for everyone. My personal traits help me to gain trust and respect of my peers as they believe me to be a positive, open-minded and reliable person. I have learned to solve problems and conflicts thanks to this great experience of leadership, and I am always ready to assist my peers when it is
Being the Tuba Section leader for two years has been very beneficial to me because I learned leadership skills that a majority people don't learn till they're in college or even later. Being in the Pride of Broken Arrow has taught me that good leaders lead by example.
During my sophomore year especially, I did my best to be a leader in my definition: dedicated, helpful, and authentic as a person. In our band, I was the leader for the twenty-odd flutes we had in our section. As expected of an officer throughout the marching season, I helped
This is Faith Cox and welcome to my section leader essay. As you may know, I am now a junior in the Lewisburg band program and maintain the position of second chair in the French horn section. Last year I applied as a sophomore, and I can confidently say I have not only gathered more experience over the past year, but I have also become even more passionate about band. That passion has led me to once again apply for section leader. However, this time I am much more matured as a musician, and I am eager to see my section succeed as they have in the past and help them in any way they may need.
Being involved in several activities at Skutt Catholic aspire and motivate me to reach and strife for success and accomplishment. A prime example of my accomplishments are shown in the band program. My commitment and passion for band goes deep within the band program. I strictly practice self discipline of constant repetition and long dedicated practices in order to receive superiors in districts and an alternate position in the Nebraska Allstate band my sophomore year. As a the drum major of the marching band I had to uphold several leadership skills that require essential attribute to the position. These essential attributes include excellent musical, marching, organizational, and communication skills, as well as a servant-leader attitude. Being the leader of the band demands that I become the best role model I can be for upperclassmen. For instance I am the first to arrive and leave at practices, I must always maintain a positive attitude at all times, and to humbly go the extra mile to serve the band. Another activity that symbolizes my character was football. Football was both a mental and physical struggle, but what truly motivated me to strap on the green and black helmet everyday was my deep respect for my loyal teammates and legacy of the football program built at Skutt Catholic. During
I have had many accomplishments and times of leadership. Some leadership roles I have participated in are: being Deacons Quorum President, Senior Patrol Leader, Band, Cross Country, “Teacher’s PET” in 5th grade, and Basketball. Some achievements I’ve accomplished are: being #1 on the reading hall of fame in 5th grade, had 4 Band concerts, gone to Scout Camp and helped with eagle projects, been to 7 Cross Country meets, and been on 3 Basketball teams.
Why should we choose you as a section leader? There are so many things that I could say about why I should be section leader, about how I am the most qualified, or why I am the best suited to be a section leader compared to the other upperclassmen. However, I want to answer this question by talking about my experience in the marching band organization and what made me want to become a section leader. In my freshmen year, I was very naive to the marching band as I had little to no prior experience with the marching band other than the one time I performed at a football game with the 2013 band in 8th grade. However, my section leader, May Nakari, helped guide me through basically everything that I needed to know to excel at the activity, from
My Sophomore year I wanted to do something more, push myself for something greater, so I auditioned for Winter Guard leadership. Leadership was a path that I originally did not see myself taking but through the support of my team members, instructor, and band director I found it was another way to express my passion for guard. I became one of the few sophomore captains in Creekview High School’s history. I had no previous leadership experience and I was young
I never sang too loud so if I messed up, no one would hear it .After every class I would go up to my Choir or band director with about five questions. But it simply was not enough. So my sophomore year I was given vocal lessons that taught me that I can match pitch consistently , and that my range was bigger than I ever thought it could be. I discovered a talent that I loved and I intended to perfect it .I performed in multiple cabarets and had the opportunity to sing with my choir at the Carnegie music hall. I was finally getting the swing of music; but that was not enough due to my obstinacy. I wanted to learn
Blistering heat, rushing adrenaline, and a lost voice are all ways to describe one example of a leadership experience that I had was during my junior year at my second CBL Cross Country race. I remember that at this time, instead of putting in our top seven runners at this varsity race, we actually instead put in our number eight through 14 runners on the team due to our coach playing a gamble and seeing if we could still possibly win the League Championship while sitting out our top racers.
Recently, I have been honored with the responsibility of leading my section in the Great Oak Marching Band. Over the years, I have observed the behavior and mannerisms of the previous sections leaders and certain elements stand out to me that are good, and some that need to be much improved. Most section leaders are connected individuals and can really form strong bonds, but the tendency is only lean toward a limited group of people. This often results in other members being left out of activities that should be involving all within that section. From my experience this past year, I know I have to make a conscience effort to involve everyone equally. It is difficult to be efficient when you are constantly having to second guess yourself. It can often seem as though all your efforts to be a good leader are futile and those around you do not respect you.
