Yeah, but I still really don’t have a single top pick. I visited every one of these schools for at least two days, took a lesson with the professor, talked with music admissions, and talked with the marching band directors. But here it is in the order it is today:
University of Michigan
University of Wisconsin-Madison (I LOVED the school, but with Professor Stevens becoming Dean of Music, I would have a grad student as a teacher and I don’t really want that)
University of Maryland
Other than accepting a 1st place trophy covered in blood, I would have to say winning the State Championship my freshman year.
Here’s the corps in semi-finals; I can’t find the video on YouTube anymore. The quality is so-so. Anybody got a better link?
