“It was really cool,” Minter said. “Because these girls were third graders, they seemed really excited to work together.”

The band members taught the Girl Scouts how to mark time, forward march, do a four count turn, and be called to attention. Band director Debra Steiner thought the students did a good job at teaching the Girl Scouts.

“They were really good at making the adjustment for the younger kids,” Steiner said. “They were very encouraging. It was really awesome.”

Minter was very impressed with the performance of the Girl Scouts.

“They did really well,” Minter said. “They executed all of the moves that we taught them really, really well.”

Steiner enjoyed watching the younger kids learn from the band members.

“It was fun. Everything to a third grader is awesome,” Steiner said. “They don’t have to be cool, they just like everything. It’s great.”
