"Personally, the band program represents unity. As a freshmen, the only reason that I chose to participate in the band program was for the college credits; as a junior, I don't even think of the college credits. As I walked into the band room everyday, the sense of unity was so strong – it was the only room where freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors could all share the same love for the same activity. The will and determination of all the students resulted in incredible music and sound."

"I always loved music, so obviously when I was offered lessons for an instrument in school I accepted. It far exceeded my expectations. Not only did it become a great hobby, it opened so many doors for me to explore and gave me so many skills I would have never been able to get otherwise. Being in a band program let me be apart of something bigger than myself. It taught me how to work towards a common goal with a large group of people. Because of my knowledge of music, I am able to listen to music differently than I ever have. It gives me a new appreciation and furthered my passion. The band program really helps to bring people with common interests together to create something larger than any of us."

"Being able to create your own music is a wonderful skill and so continuing to play your instrument is a must!"
