Band clinic prepares musicians

School news


Members of the W.T. Clarke High School marching band attended a clinic during the first week of the 2012-13 school year to prepare for performances at school games and parades.

Band director Kevin Scully said that returning band members refreshed their skills, while freshman and other newcomers learned about spacing and how to march in formation. The clinic was also an opportunity for students to practice music that will be performed during Columbus Day parades held on Long Island and in New York City.
