Rehearsing their songs, Band Club members are preparing for the annual Coyote Coachella in April.
“Playing with the band has definitely helped me improve as a musician,” Band member Thomas Schotik said. “I’ve learned how to work with people and how to motivate and work well with a group.”
The band has been practicing a wide variety of songs from different artists, such as Billie Eilish and AC/DC.
“Well, as a band, we haven’t perfected enough songs or incorporated enough members into each song,” Schotik said. “We aren’t able to present our work yet – a little more time and we will be ready to.”
Speech and Debate, every Thursday, E131
Preparing their materials, Speech and Debate members will finish their cases and speeches for their tournament on Feb. 28-29.
“I definitely feel excited about the upcoming tournaments,” Speech and Debate Vice President George Luo said. “However, I do feel nervous because I feel I need to practice more for the upcoming tournament.”
The upcoming tournament will have both speech and debate events, with some members participating in both categories, and at different skill brackets.
“You can never really be 100% prepared for anything,” Luo said. “However, our members are working hard in their preparations for the upcoming tournament.”
