The Teague Lion Band has put in countless hours since the beginning of August for their show, “Pandora’s Box”. The students have been working hard to perfect their show every chance they step foot onto the grid in the parking lot, or the football field when available.

The band has met with clinician Mr. Jason Levin a band director from Houston. The students are very dedicated to improve the show and has taken time away from their weekends to rehearse.

“I think the thing gained a lot from our clinic tonight, the most important thing, bringing attention to our fundamentals and implementing them into our show,” drum major Katelin Bodine said.

The students have taken all of the tips he has gave them very well into consideration and have put them to good use in their show.

“He did a really good job coaching us on parts we needed to improve. He improved our posture and marching backwards very much,” sophomore flutist Monica Contreras said.

Levin has helped the band tremendously with providing tips for their musicality and marching fundamentals. The band appreciates him very much for traveling all the way to Teague to help them prepare for their regional UIL contest this year in Groesbeck Saturday, October 21st.

Drum major Katelin Bodine said, “We have programmed for a lot this year increasing the difficulty of both our music and drill. If we can execute our show the way we have in practice, I am confident that we will do well at region.”
