Settled in the gorgeous Bourissa Hills, Bourissa Academy prides itself on excellence and precision in the marching arts. Presenting four different outfits: the Bourissa Pipes and Drums, the 1st Irish Regimental Band, St. Patrick’s Percussion, and the Irish Regimental Drill Team.
As a Junior in the New Prairie Marching Cougars I have completed 4 seasons of marching band, 6 seasons of concert band, and 3 seasons of Jazz Band in both our upper and lower bands. I am the section leader for low brass. I play Trombone and Baritone (Euphonium). I pride myself on having written the pregame drill for the Marching Cougars and manage the uniforms. (I also design uniforms and drill.) This year I will start marching Bagpipes as well.
In 2018 I marched in the Ohio State Marching Band Summer Clinic.
In my free time I practice different marching styles, Chair Step and Highland are my favorite.
By far Marching Band is my favorite and I am addicted to the Marching Arts. Some of my favorite DCI shows are: Cavaliers 1975, Madison Scouts 1975, Spirit of Atlanta 1979, SCV 1989, Blue Stars 2014, and Carolina Crown 2016.
This next year I will hopefully be Cadet teaching band, then going into college for music Education at either Northwestern or Notre Dame.
