It is vitally important that students have a great experience in music so that they can inspire their communities. Since bands are traditionally the most visible and community-centered musical ensemble, we feel that it is the best outlet for inspiring others through the performance of music.
In the process of rehearsing and performing, we develop students to become kinder, more independent, more resilient, and more mature.
Through band, students learn the meaning of trust and the benefits of belonging to a group that cares deeply about one another.
