Li-shan Junior High School Band
Li-shan Junior High School Band was founded in 2002. At the time when Teacher Lin first came to Li-shan, he didn’t even know where the school was. However, in this unfamiliar junior high school, after seeing the terrible school band, his zeal for music had driven him to overcome difficulties and founded a real band, a band that performed beautiful music.
In addition to the extra curricular class, no class is left for the band, so Teacher Lin and the students practiced during the nap time after lunch and on Sunday morning. Step by step, they formed an ideal band.
One year passed, and it was time for our band to first show itself in a competition. Performing on those borrowed and almost broken instruments, our band surprisingly defeated won the second place! The following years, our band had always got good grades and even won the first place in the east area! Our band had spoken for itself and approved the effort and that the teacher and all the students had made.
There are band A, band B, band for competition and the school fellow band, in Li-shan Junior High School Band. Besides all the effort Teacher Lin and the students have made, the Parents Supporting Group and the school also support a lot, and even school fellows who have been graduated often come back to school and encourage the band. These people help the band to develop into such a wonderful and successful one. With those music lover’s effort, Li-shan Junior High School Band will keep growing and shining in the future.
