Why Band?

Learning music and playing in the band is a meaningful and gratifying experience for all people of all ages.  Music study demands discipline, creativity, cooperation, and perseverance.  Many researchers now believe that music trains the brain for higher forms of thinking.  Developing these skills early in life helps children succeed in school, in society, and in life.  They learn to practice, to communicate, and to work together.  And they learn a stimulating, rewarding activity that will enhance the rest of their lives.

Practicing music reinforces teamwork, communication skills, self-discipline, and the creativity qualities kids need to be successful in their other school work and in life.  Playing in the band is a great way to make friends.
