On December 20th, 2019, the West Branch Warrior Band got the chance to play with Dr. Stowman from Messiah College. Dr. Stowman gave private lessons to all WB Trumpet Players. Later in the day, the whole Senior High Band had the chance for Dr. Stowman to improve on the music that the Band just recently performed at their Christmas Concert. It was not only a learning experience for the band but also Mr. Jones. Dr. Stowman showed Mr. Jones ways to help improve tone and sound with a simple exercise. Mr. Jones plans on bringing in more Professors and taking the band to more musical experiences.
