Is your child interested in joining theschool band or orchestra?
If you're new to the world of instrumental music, Yamaha is here to help.
By joining the school band or orchestra, your child will make fast friends and learn to work on a team. Plus, the cognitive and personal benefits of learning music, especially at a young age, have been extensively researched.
A beginning band or orchestra student will learn how to read music, as well as study musical concepts such as melody, harmony, and rhythm. They'll start playing their instrument of choice and learn how to assemble and care for the instrument.
Once your child has the basics down, he or she will continue to learn more complex and different styles of music. Most school programs offer different kinds of ensembles: marching band, jazz band, wind ensemble or concert band, and/or orchestra.
After high school, your child will find opportunities to play music in college band or orchestra, or in community groups. On the other hand, they may want to play just for themselves, with friends or even professionally. The memories, musical skills and life lessons they learn in a band or orchestra will stay with them for their entire lives.
Choosing an Instrument
Ultimately, your child should play the instrument that they will enjoy the most. He or she may have the opportunity to explore different instruments at school before making a final decision. Of course, the band director may also assign a particular instrument to them.
