Howard University Marching Band Scholarship Info Posted on 01-14-2008
theTRUTH

The Howard University "Showtime" Marching Band has scholarships available for all interested musicians. Scholarships are given based on skill level and playing ability and vary in amount. Students of all classifications may receive a marching band scholarship, however, preference is given to first time in college freshmen. Band scholarships are reserved for wind and percussion players only. Auxilary members (Ooh La La! Dancers and Flashy Flag Squad) DO NOT receive scholarships. Interested individuals can post their inquiries in this forum or PM me. All young ladies interested in try-out information should contact the Director of Bands at Howard University, Mr. John Newson, at 202-806-5241.

Mr. Newsome is hilarious. I had a good chat with him when I went up to D.C. in November. He and Mr. Washington were really pushing me to send in a tape of me playing b/c they said I could get a decent amount of money if I played in concert band since I want to pursue dancing. I'm still thinking about it, and now it seems like the wise thing to do.

If I were you, I would do whatever I can to get the most money. If you get a band scholarship plus another one from the University then you should be set. AND if you decided to run track you might get a lil piece of change from that too.

Yea, I hear ya T. But I'm not sure about the track thing. If I weren't so lazy then maybe I'd consider it but as of now I just want to see how much money I can scrounge up without having to move these legs.

You are welcome. I plan to attend the Honda Battle of the Bands in Atlanta. Are there any events taking place in Atlanta on Jan 25th? What do you think about the Velvet Room, Compoud, and Verve? Thanks in advance!

There are always events on Friday night in Atlanta. The Velvet Room is nice; I had an okay time but the bouncers were rude. I've never been to Verve but I've heard it was pretty good. I love the Compound...I havent been in a minute cuz I heard it was closed due to remodeling so I'll have to get back to you on that.
