Amazing Band Story

August 24, 2015

SciTech Band

Americans for the Arts included in their newsletter an article about a high school in Springfield, Massachusetts that established a band that is having a positive impact on the school. In fact the band didn’t exist 8 years ago and now their are 500 members in the band out of a student body of 1500. Just learning their names is a challenge. Many of the students are not graduating from high school and many of them have never had any musical experience before entering the class, 99% have never seen an instrument before. This is a really good example of how one teacher can make an enormous difference. You can read the article by CLICKING HERE. You can watch the video at this link
