We're fairly well balanced, but we have no percussion. 1 flute (cannot take band but marching with us), 2 clarinets, 1 alto, 1 tenor, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, 3 baritones, 1 tuba and 1 beginner. I have our tenor sax playing snare and quads and a student that doesn't play anything or read music playing bass drum. I have two students that are possibly moving this week. My bass drummer had a bad accident and will be out a while. Our trombone player that's having knee surgery that will sideline him for 8-10 weeks.
Would this be a good year to not do UIL and rebuild the numbers or go for it and take our medicine? They do march and play well, but it is challenging with the drummers trying to learn how to play. They are not marching but are grounded.
