Right now, just like you,

millions of students all across the country

are asking themselves that same question.

This video will help!!!


  • What's it like to have a student in Band?
  • What can we expect?
  • Is my child going to enjoy this?
  • Should we do this?

Join your school music program!

Here is a letter written by one of our students:

Thank you for being my band teacher this past year! I'm grateful for you, the boys who were in band class, the songs we played, and my instrument. Thank you for teaching me how to play my trumpet in band class, fixing my trumpet and oiling my valves when they weren't working. I will practice when I am in high school. My fun memories were playing all the songs together, playing at a concert and practicing music with me on my trumpet and you on your saxophone. I'll always remember you and me in band class and it always was a great time.

Love, Joseph
