The best reason to be in band is for the simple enjoyment of playing an instrument (which, by the way, you can do for the rest of your life). But there are other benefits and lessons learned from being in band:

  • We learn to work together towards common goals
  • We get to perform in concerts and contests
  • We learn patience
  • We learn time management
  • We learn to strive for perfection in all we do
  • We reap the rewards of a job well done
  • We take a cool spring trip
  • We make lots of great friends
  • We become a second family
