To the Editor:

I thoroughly enjoyed ThisWeek's piece on high school marching bands today. It reminded me of the time our daughter tried out for the high school band.

After the first marching practice, she came home very frustrated and said, "That band director has to decide if she wants me to play that instrument or march, but I can't do both."

She did learn it was possible to do both. She was an "A" student.
