From Chris Foster, Cary High Band Director
There are many amazing aspects of being in the Cary Band. For parents, they want their children to:
Develop a habit of persistence that will help them through the tough times in life and keep them on task when it would be easier to quit.
Learn to be more responsible and see that mistakes are an opportunity to grow and make necessary corrections on the pathway to success.
Master the skills of cooperation so they enjoy working with their counterparts in every realm of personal and professional life.
Create a set of personal values that allow a prosperous and fulfilling lifelong journey and find a way to express these understandings.
Find a meaningful form of contribution that is significant to self and others.
Band is a training ground for all these attributes, and so much more. Unfortunately, many non-band parents and non-band students are not told of the many benefits band students acquire, such as improved self-image, personal discipline, and the ability to work with others.
From a personal viewpoint, I am absolutely convinced that once non-band people understand the value music has in the development of every student, more people would be a part of the CARY BAND FAMILY. So, spread the word! #BecauseOfBand #CaryBand
