Georgia-Rae Teems is a senior at Central High School who has been a member of Central’s band program all four years of her high school career. She has been playing instruments since sixth grade and has been part of Central’s marching band for five years.

Teems is recognized as the Central Sound Drum Major. She takes pride in that for she has been Drum Major for two consecutive years.

“Being Drum Major is the best thing I have ever done. These last two years as Drum Major have been the biggest honor. It is so thrilling and full of excitement, and having Bloodworth teach me has been so much fun,” voiced Teems.

Georgia plays five instruments; Bass Clarinet, Contra-Alto Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, and Piano. These instruments have helped her achieve many accomplishments during her time here at Central.

“I have made the UGA Janfest Honor Band every year. I made Lee University Honor Band the last three years. I have participated in the UTC Honor Band several times, as well with All East for three years. Last year I participated in the UTK single reed day,” Teems explained.

“I have also received the outstanding musician award my freshman, sophomore, and junior years. I hope to get it this year as well,” she added.

Many students and teachers are extremely proud of how far she has come. One student in particular is Dimas Azoca, a sophomore at Central High School.

“I am very proud of how far Georgia has come because I have known her for a while and she is my bestfriend. We do everything together and for her to be able to pick up a piece of music and know how to play it just by looking at it is amazing. I have never met someone so talented in my life,” elaborated Azoca.

Teems plans on joining the Army after she graduates, however, she plans to eventually pick music back up as a hobby. She also plans to look into and join a community band when she settles down.
