we're usually just over 200 people, (211 last year i believe) but i think we're down this year due to a HUGE senior class just graduating- we've gone from 30-something to 17 clarinets.

Not counting percussion, I think that we have around 80 mambers. A lot of people quit because our show last year was bad, so I guess they were disenchanted with band

We have roughly 240 members to our marching band:

Flute- 43
Clarinet- 43 also
Bass clarinet- 5
Alto Sax- 36
Tenor Sax- 7
Bari Sax- 5
Mellophone- 7
Trumpet- 28
Trombone- 14
Baritone- 8
Tuba- 7
Percussion- 18
Auxiliary/Colorguard- 10
Drum Majors- 4
Pit- 7

Having so many members is cool, but it severely limits our formation designs- most of the time we're just making arcs and curves, or one big picture, like a monkey or a duck (I have no idea why though lol).

thats the exact same with our school.it seems that everyone is focussed on sports.wats really sad is to see the athletic kids that drop out of band and chorus in middle school to play sports in high school when they arnt even good at all.more often then not they dont even make the team and they gave up music and never go back to it,leaving our band smaller than b4.i people like that and after they leave i dont talk to them much cause im never around them at all really.its really sad but ive tried to convince them not 2 quit but that doesnt work.but the joke on them is in high school they hav music theory and the hav 2 write an essay a week insted of making the smart choice to sing or play an instrument.sadley my school doesnt get money 4 band the parents hav to provide funds and if enough people quit we will nolonger hav a music program...:-(

toni thats really sad. we ductape our instruments too,infact the drumline/pit believes that is gods gift to them...but its really is sad.our band directors office is filled w/ some asbestous or somethin and the school wont help pay 4 it 2 b removed so dirt is getting on all of our pics and tropheys and they will b ruined if the problem is not fixed.out of the 15 sr's that left last year 7 newbies came.leaving our marching band even smaller this year.its not fair to us or the band director.:-(
