"Hi! This is Katie, I was your bari sax in this years District Jazz's blue band [Johnstown, PA]. I wanted to tell you how amazing District Jazz [DJ] was this year. I wanted to tell you in person but I was too shy to do it. Anyway, DJ was honestly the best musical experience of my life, I've never been so happy just to play, and I'm always happy to play. But, DJ was just...something else. Thank you so much! You were the funnest director I've ever had! You taught us so much, I mean, I've never learned so much about music theory. I really want to go into the music field now...especially Jazz. I really want to be a good jazz musician. Thank you so much for the experience the last couple days. You really made it special. My family agrees, because I have yet to stop talking about it. Love, Katie. p.s. Rebecca says Hi! She was your third trumpet."
