Membership of a school band demands much of the student. They have to practise to improve their technigque; practice to master the band music; learn new skills to develop their contribution to the band and then they also have to learn the theory and associated matter to understand what they are doing when playing the band repetoire.

At the school my two youngest children attend, is an award that is given that which comes from teacher nominations. The award recognises a student's demonstration of "outstanding attitude and behaviour" and nomination criteria state that the student:
* gives their best
* has an excellent work ethic
* is co-operative
* is well mannered
* wear the uniform properly

The student may not be the top student in any one subject in anyone subject, but they give their best. In band, they could be the third clarinet player, or the triangle player. They may be new to the band and inexperienced. Much of what confronts them might be frightening or confusing but they commit to the band and the teacher and to their own sense of what is right. In fact, they have to give of themselves with all their might!

This work is a tribute to those students and the teachers who inspire them to such heights. It is my personal "With All Thy Might Award" to those people around the world, especially in Singapore who comissioned it, and at Kelvin Grove State College in Brisbane, Australia, who inspired the title (and my children).
