Why Join The Music Program

Playing music in a band or orchestra program is so much more than just a hobby. Here are a few of the biggest reasons your student should join an instrumental music program today.

  • Higher Test Scores

    According to the College Entrance Examination Board, students in a school music program scored 107 points higher on their SAT’s than students who did not participate in music. (MENC/NAfME, 2002)

  • Scholarships

    It is estimated that $46 billion is awarded in collegiate scholarships each year in the United States. College-bound student musicians become eligible for thousands of fine arts scholarships.
