Wylie Football games through a Tuba player’s lens 2013
In nearly every band, the Tuba section is far from the boring, dorky marching band students they’re often made out to be. Tuba players, in Wylie High School’s band especially, dance, laugh, and enjoy every event more than any other instrument group as a whole. These pictures show how Tuba players have the best view in the stands (or bus) at every football game. Not only do they get an eagle eye’s view of the game itself, but also a peek at all behind-the-scenes action from fellow band members that director’s don’t always get to see.
