Why some students have chosen to play in Concert Band:
"It gives me a time to think differently than in other "book" classes. It is also a great way to meet and interact with other students."
"There is something almost magical about playing in band. The way all the instruments play off each other to create a unified whole."
"I like the challenge of fitting the music together and working together to make beautiful music. It's fun and a way for me to escape the stresses of everyday life."
"It feels good to be a part of making music."
"I love to play and I love to hear other people play and be a part of it. I can contribute to beautiful music."
"I like to play with other people to better connect with them and be emotionally expressive as a whole. I let off a whole lotta steam in band from my hectic day."
"I love the tingly feeling I get when a piece of music is played well. Everything just clicks!"
"I love to play because it make me feel great physically and mentally."
