Not so common after all
By JANET L. SIEFERT
This band hall is common, nothing special by the looks of it. The designers’ goals were utility and function, and this room could be placed on the periphery of any local high school. This one is part of Westfield High School in the Spring Independent School District.
It is windowless and big. A number of little rooms open onto the big hall. There is a cluttered look, not from neglect, but from use. Diagrams and boards full of notes line halls and walls. There is the standard trophy case filled with tributes; it does not inspire much curiosity. Trophies are too familiar, too common. Discarded clothing is strewn about. I notice a great deal of individuality represented in the colors, patterns and styles – individuality that ultimately will be masked by identical marching band uniforms.
I know the students are here, although I don’t actually see them. They are closeted in personal practice rooms or with fellow musicians
