I always find it difficult to choose just one Student of the Week. I enjoy all of my students and could write one of these for any one of them. I will choose one, however, and it is Casper Shier. Casper joined band this semester as a first year saxophonist. He had never played before, but was willing to dive right into the deep end of the pool. He has made a great deal of progress in a short amount of time and surprised me with how well he played on a recent quiz. Thank you, Jackson Footit for helping Casper get a good start. I have enjoyed working with Casper and watching him improve with each rehearsal. He has fit right into the band with his lively personality and sense of fun. I look forward to many years of music with Casper.
