“On each page of their drill books, besides all of the marching “stuff” I have them each find a motivation quote or statement. When I first hand out their set books I usually have one quote ready. I have them put it on the first page. Then as a “homework” project, I have them look for some that really mean something to them. Throughout the season I share some that pertain to that week or something that happened at rehearsal and I will ask them to share their quotes as well from time to time. It definitely serves as a motivational tool because they are constantly looking at their set books.”
