Why should I want my child in the band?

An Education in Music Is an Education for Life!

Organized, sustained music study gives a student intellectual and creative advantages that will last a lifetime. The study of music allows students to gain an appreciation and understanding of some of civilization’s greatest achievements. Music nurtures skills and abilities that form the basis for success in any area of endeavor.

Because of all the things listed below, and many others, band students are, as a group, the best students. Typical East Texas school band members represent about twenty percent of the total school population. However, they usually represent about seventy-five percent of the National Honor Society and less than three percent of the school discipline problems. I ask you, isn't this where you want your son or daughter?

Important Skills Your Child Learns In Band
2 Beginning School Band Instruments
Using Symbols: Learning to read, write, and interpret musical notation strengthens the use of other symbol systems such as mathematics and language. Some schools even give foreign language credit for the study of music.
3 Beginning School Band Instruments
Making Good Value Judgments: Learning to comprehend, consider, and evaluate music can help your child make informed decisions and uphold value judgments in other aspects of life.
4 Beginning School Band Instruments
Classifying Knowledge: The student musician learns to classify styles of music and to recognize how cultures use music for personal expression.
5 Beginning School Band Instruments
Coordination: Hand and eye coordination working together are the ingredients for playing an instrument. These coordination skills transfer to many other aspects of life, like driving and sports. It is believed the the simultaneous use of both sides of the brain is what causes students to excel academically.
6 Beginning School Band Instruments
Self-Confidence: Being able to go from learning notes and rhythms to producing meaningful music instills a sense of accomplishment, pride, and self-confidence.
7 Beginning School Band Instruments
Teamwork: Every child wants to be part of a group. Band allows everyone to belong by being an important part of the team. Basketball coaches marvel that they can get five people to cooperate on the court. Think of 25 to 125 high school musicians playing as many as 4 notes in one beat of rhythm… and doing it together!
8 Beginning School Band Instruments
Self-Discipline: A key ingredient in learning the basics of music and performance is self-discipline. The self-discipline transfers both to other school subjects as well as life in general. A study showed that medical schools prefer students with musical training partially because of this self-discipline.
9 Beginning School Band Instruments
Creative Problem Solving: Learning the basics of musical language and interpreting a work through performance teaches the musician to understand a problem and reach an appropriate solution. The student learns to think more clearly.
10 Beginning School Band Instruments
Communicating: Music offers the ability to cultivate our feelings and thoughts through non-verbal means, and to respond to these non-verbal thoughts in others.
11 Beginning School Band Instruments
Emotions: We all know that adolescents are filled with complicated and intense emotions. Music is a positive way to express these feelings. A child who may not be able to tell their parents how much they love them can often express those feelings in a tender ballad, and can vent anger and passion through other musical forms.
13 Beginning School Band Instruments
Comprehension: Learning to perceive and derive meaning from musical sounds sharpens the musician’s ability to comprehend abstractions.
14 Beginning School Band Instruments
Reasoning Logically: When the student learns to analyze a musical work from all perspectives, or to improvise within a certain musical style, both inductive and deductive reasoning grows stronger.
