Can my child play in the band?

17 Beginning School Band InstrumentsThe answer is: probably. If your child makes passing grades in the seventieth percentile or higher, they will most likely have the ability to be a good band student. Instrumental music actually helps the intelligence (I.Q.) of students. By the time they graduate from high school, many average students will excel at music. There are only a few physical problems which prevent people from playing a band instrument. These are rare and most can be overcome by matching the student with the correct instrument.

The most common question we get is concerning braces. Braces will cause some discomfort on instruments which press the lip into the teeth (flute, trumpet/cornet, trombone). This might discourage practice and therefore hender their progress. A child's desire is the biggest motivational factor there is, and we've all seen kids who "shouldn't" play a certain instrument excel.

As your beginning band student matures from a lowly sixth grade band member into young adulthood, you will be amazed at the emotions that they expel through their instrument. You might give some thought where these emotions will go without the music.

An old band director I knew used to have what I thought of as a very corny saying. He said, “teach a kid to blow a horn, and they will never blow a safe”. Corny it may be, but many people involved in music education have some version of the same idea.
