Our founder Christopher Newcombe spent a week as a marching band technician for Todd Beamer High School in Federal Way, WA. Christopher said. “It was a rewarding experience to work with children so eager to learn and improve. Especially since this was during their summer break.” Christopher assisted the young musicians with their marching technique as well as working on the musical ensemble portion. Christopher said, “It was a great way to spend my final week of my break from university to put my skills as a music educator to work and to gear towards preparing for my student teaching semester next fall. I was very happy I was invited to work with the Todd Beamer Band, and I hope to continue to work with ensembles across the region improving musicality and to inspire more youth to continue their education in music.
