Awesome! As you may be able to tell, I'm a HUGE proponent of music programs, but especially band. Later on, the opportunity for your son to be part of a marching band might come along. Concert band teaches many useful skills like dedication and attention to detail. Marching band teaches those times a thousand, along with memorization, self-discipline, teamwork, leadership, and effective communication. I am so grateful that my parents encouraged me to be in band and supported me through everything I did. I can't even describe in words how much my time in band programs has meant to me.
