July has flown — half way through the month and there is LOTS to tell!!

Workshops In Ohio, Pennsylvania and California are either complete or well underway. The common thread for virtually all DMA locations this summer has been the weather: HOT, HOT AND HOTTER! The amazing part has been the student reaction to it—no big deal!!!

Yup it’s hot….nothing we can do about it so let’s soak up the sun and hydrate often. Besides, it’s not like Band Camp is going to be any different.

Gotta love SMART STUDENTS!

March off winners were:

Ohio:
Tyler Fairbanks (march off #2)
Nathan Chaffee (march off #1,4,5 & final!—WOW!!!)
