Rising sophomore Jeremy Brown hopes to follow in the footsteps of CCC director of bands Christopher Jefferson, whom he regards as his role model.

The music education major from Memphis, Tennessee, got to explore his musical gift in the marching band at Whitehaven High School.

“I could always hear the beat, melodic line, and the thumping bass line as separate entities,” said Brown.

Growing up, he knew there was a special connection present. Music was more than just the composition of notes.

While participating in his high school band, he discovered a passion for music. Because of his dedication to the activity, he received the best freshman award. The trombones were named the best section during his time as the section leader.

“The WHS “Sounds of Perfection.” My participation in this organization remains one of the best experiences of my life,” he said, hailing the program as the “best high school band in the state of Tennessee.”

“We were amazing. It almost does not seem feasible for us to have been as good as we were.”

For him, the band was an outlet and his primary source for fun. Music was his escape from reality as well as a go-to for dealing with personal matters.

Brown later stepped up to the role of drum major. He remembers starting out as a timid kid in the bunch then growing by leaps and bounds. Everyone had begun to see the leader in him.

Although he had found his niche, hitting the books took precedence, so he learned to balance the two.

His musical talent and love for the marching band led to him joining the Marching Maroon Typhoon of Coahoma Community College.

Having spent his freshman year in the band at CCC, he is ready to march to a new beat. Brown was announced Mr. Coahoma Community College 2020-21 in early March, a title of prestige that has caused him to take on the mentality of a student leader again. He will serve as an ambassador of the institution.

Brown says that being a Tiger has so far been rewarding.

“I would have never known about this gem of an institution if not for Mr. Christopher Jefferson,” said Brown.

“I have no regrets about my choice of institution, and I see just how special this school is.”

Jefferson gave him the scoop on all the institution has to offer but did not pressure him about enrolling.

Brown is proud to be part of a band program he describes as a point of interest and conversation among the band masses. The well-blended tones of the College’s marching band have become a hot commodity in Tiger Nation. Flaunting their excellent instrumental ability, the musicians welcome the challenge of battling groups from other schools across the South.

“We are a hit, and I get to be one of the people who make it happen,” Brown expressed. “The Marching Maroon Typhoon is pound-for-pound one of the best marching bands out there.”

“I love doing my part by playing my horn and “cranking” up with my peers. That adrenaline gets us going and hype. The feeling we get at those moments is almost indescribable. I love it.”

The words of Victor Hugo reflects Brown’s love of music—Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
