How can High School Music help you for College?

When applying to college, many students overlook their band, orchestra and choir classes. Don’t make this mistake! Participation in a music ensemble demonstrates teamwork, focus, and dedication – all of which are invaluable traits for college applicants.

Look to expand your involvement in your music ensemble, if possible. For example, try to become a section leader, or run for cabinet position. Organizational and leadership skills are important to develop early, and admissions officers will certainly take note. Take advantage of extracurricular musical activities, as well. Glee clubs, show choirs, jazz bands, and chamber orchestras will strengthen your musicianship, and your college applications.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
