Congratulations Hayden!

Cedartown Middle School has their FIRST District Honor Band Member! Hayden Zeabeau tried out and made the District Honor "B" Band.  Hayden is the first ever middle school band member from Cedartown to make District Honor Band while still in Middle School.

Students have to pass several tests to get into district honor band.   Hayden needed to play the four major scales from memory, two are two octaves.  He then needed to play his chromatic scale, which is two octaves.  Followed by an etude and sight-reading a short piece.  Mr. Gossett and all of CMS is very proud of Hayden and hope he is the first of many.
