“It’s fun to work with the people that surround me and that I erform with,” freshman Braden Johnson said.

In Johnson’s first year at high school he has joined Jazz Band, Marching band, Cross country, Speech, Debate and he is planning on doing track in the spring and DECA next year.

Johnson said jazz band is specifically designed for a more swing or rock type of music, they often rehearse and perform at festivals.

“We have MMEA (Minnesota Music Educators Association) coming up, so I’m excited about that,” said Johnson.

Johnson said band is very enjoyable because of band director, Paul Swanson, which makes the class a very laid back environment. His favorite part of band is getting to perform with his trombone section.
