5 Reasons Why YOU Should Join Band:
1. Playing Music Makes You Smarter
Scientific research has proven that musical training builds intellectual skills, raises IQs, increases spatial-temporal intelligence, improves memory, and develops creativity. As a result, students who play a musical instrument perform better in school. In a recent study of SAT scores, students with music education as a part of their curriculum scored 53 points higher in Reading and 39 points higher in Math.
2. Playing Music Teaches Work Ethic
Music students learn that if they apply themselves they can master a skill and achieve the results they want. Learning to play a musical instrument teaches self-discipline, the value of persistence, and the rewards of hard work.
3. Playing Music Teaches Teamwork and Builds Confidence
Music is self-expression. Performing music in public, individually and as a member of a group, builds confidence. Playing music in a group also teaches teamwork. Making music means every musician plays a part that is important to the group. There are no "backups" in band - everyone is a starter.
4. Playing Music Relieves Stress
Music helps calm the mind, which is why music students experience less test-anxiety than students who don't study music. According to studies, college-age musicians are emotionally healthier than non-musicians.
5. Playing Music Is FUN!
Everyone in the band works together and shares the joy and rewards of group accomplishment after concerts and contests. Band members share efforts and experiences, and are often friends for life.
