FUQUAY VARINA HIGH SCHOOL COLOR GUARD
Band Director: Mr. Matthew Edwards | email@example.com | 919-557-2511, ext. 23852
Color Guard Instructor: Brandy Myers
Color guard is part of the marching band. Color guard is important to the marching band because they bring everything together. They help everyone understand the rhythm of the wind instruments, the taps of the drums and the various sounds of the instruments within the pit together. Their performances add a visual element to the show with a goal to help the audience better interpret the music along with visual pleasure. Flag changes that happen with the change of the music enhance the story that the musicians are trying to tell and help the audience realize the tone of the next song. The element of the color guard catches the attention of the audience and forces them to pay more attention to the various elements of a marching band: the drumline, the pit and the wind instruments.
