When Taylor first approached us about joining Tri City Band Corps, we had our reservations. What is the time commitment? How is this applicable to college? After three years of being an active member, however, it’s evident that Taylor has developed important life skills such as initiative, time management, teamwork, commitment and an appreciation for a solid work ethic. TBC has provided him an outlet to be part of a team with a common purpose and a common interest – to share in the love of music. He was only 2 years old when he picked up a guitar and began strumming along with the Eagles he saw performing on television. He is self-taught in guitar and TBC has allowed him to hone his skills in an area of the arts he is truly passionate about - performing. More importantly, he learned the meaning of giving back to the community.
