As a young musician, I always knew that I’d make an effort to
have some involvement with music throughout my high school
career. I came into Jesuit as a shy kid that could play piano and
read music. On orientation day my freshman year, Mr. Cargile told
me that I’d be a percussionist, one of the guys that stand in the
back and hit stuff. Getting out of PE already made it worth it to
join band, but being in the back of the band, where less people
would notice me, sounded even better.
