                FYI Facts about Music: 
    In an average 10 minute marching band show, there are a staggering 1 MILLION individual choices and responsibilities on the members for a single performance.  Each one helps develop teamwork and skills that impact everyone else on the field.  Colleges are aware of the demands and view participation in band as a strong indicator of future success.  Music students are often given preference for admission and scholarships colleges, including the Ivy League schools.-National Association of Music Parents.
     
     
    Creativity is always an asset when it comes to college applications.  Students active in creative arts, like music, drama and visual arts tend to be open-minded, eccentric and think outside of the box.  These qualities add to campus life, which is a bonus in the eyes of a college admissions officers. - Impressive Extracurricular
