My high school doesn't have an alma mater, so I was asked to write one because nobody else in the school shows the ability/interest of writing music, and all the music teachers bugged out on it.
I don't have to do it, but it'd be really cool to! And I'll get to conduct the band in it! And my name will go down in HPRHS history! And I can add it to my resume!!!
The band director told me that I don't need to write words to it and that probably the chorus teacher or another student and I will colaborate and modify the theme to suit the words. He also said that it needs to be very lyric and easy for the audience to sing. Eventually it'll have to be for band and chorus. I can do the arranging. I LIKE that part!!
Talk to me!
