Getting to play music in school is an experience you’ll take with you for a long time. Music becomes a life long passion for some and even if you don’t get to play professionally it’s always a great pastime. Playing in school is a great way to improve with your instrument as well as a social tool.

Your school probably holds fundraisers to help with these costs and we’ve come up with some ideas for you teachers and parents for new ideas for this year’s band fundraising campaign.
