It’s no secret that there’s more to academic success than readin’, writin’ and ’rithmetic.
Music education empowers students to integrate and apply every lesson learned throughout secondary and post-secondary school. It drives academic achievement, strengthens social awareness, teaches teamwork, increases attentiveness, rewards persistence, enhances cultural competence, and deepens interpersonal connections.
To better prepare them for the challenges of college and career, parents who are familiar with the positive effects of music education are happy to sign their kids up for Band. They’ve read countless thoroughly-researched-and-peer-reviewed reports, all of which suggest Band students perform better academically, socially and professionally.
Instrumental music is the special sauce that helps kids make the most of their high school education. To begin your child’s instrumental music journey, contact your school’s Band Director.
