Marching Band

These people keep telling me that marching band isn't a sport. I quote "An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment." Then they tell me that it has no competition. Boy!!! I have one this weekend. 

20th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_cryptogram

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Here is an example where the piece uses a musical cryptogram:

Your submission will be due at 15th February

Music programs in different countries

Hey ya'll I'm 15 y/0 tenor player from Australia and was wondering what music programs you guys have in the countries your in. My school has a Stage Band which plays jazz swing and pop music (which i'm in) which consist of 5 saxes (2 Alto, 2 Tenor, 1 Barri), 4 Trombones (3 Tenor 1 Bass), 4 trumpets, 2 basses as well as a piano player and drum/percussion. 
We also have a concert band made up of all the band instruments which usually plays movie themes and marching pieces (but we never march)

Just wondering what other countries experience and if they like it. 
Thanks for reading!

So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated.

Okay then, I started a discussion trying to get to 1k comments, and I thought it would fail. As I am writing this, Lizzapie, Mnmwert, Vash Hartman, and myself are spamming to get it to 1k. It's already at like 150 or something (every 2 minutes I refresh and I have 10+ notifications lol)

Now the member count has capped out at around 1 member per day, BUT this is a random group, and I didn't really expect it to be this active.
