So far things have been wonderful in Alabama! There’s such a great intensity amongst this group of students, and I’m here to tell you that I love it!

Being the first full day, we took a look at everybody’s conducting patterns in tv rooms today. It’s always amazed me just how quickly some people manage to go from a timid, unclear pattern to a confident, clear pattern. After one day’s work, I can say that everybody’s made some improvement. I can’t wait to see how much further these drum majors will be able to refine the craft in the next few days.
