Character & Teamwork


Wherever the band program goes, we should strive to represent ourselves highly with strong character. This would include empathizing with others, doing the right thing even if nobody is looking, and doing your very best.


Band class emphasizes teamwork. Without the contributions of each member and the preparation by each member, we would not succeed to function as a collective whole. It's critical that we work to respect and empathize with each other.

Regular stories of people from New York (and around the world). Great for working to develop empathy towards others - especially people that are very different from you.
