Taking your student band on the road at any time of year is a great idea, but nothing says, “Great job!” like celebrating successful learning by traveling with your band before the summer break.
You’ve all worked hard to build a team that makes music pleasing to the ear. You’ve created that special serendipity that happens almost organically through repeated instruction, practice and enhanced understanding of the instruments and their roles.
One of the primary benefits of traveling with your band at the end of the year is the celebratory aspect, but there’s more.
Raised awareness and funds.
A band trip is a perfect way to celebrate your achievements together, but it’s also an opportunity to draw community attention to your music program.
Your trip can be the focal point of community outreach which highlights your band’s skills and gives them a chance to sing your program’s praises. When you reach out to the community by publicizing the trip you’re planning, you’re making new friends and influencing curricular decisions for next year’s students and their parents.
Participating in community events is just one way you can spread the word. You highlight your band, draw attention to its achievements and share the news about the year end trip. At the same time, you’re generating excitement about the music program and its benefits.
And that can mean enrollments and donations from surprising sources.
Traveling with your band provides you students with a memorable adventure and gives them an opportunity to bond and grow together, as they learn lessons outside the classroom. The experiences they’ll have on the road will be remembered well into the future, nurturing their love of music and the collegiality of performing with others.
Your students will come home inspired by the experience, sharing it with friends and family. They will have been experienced by throngs of people at parades, competitions, or festivals and forged new relationships with people they wouldn’t otherwise have met.
The experiences your band has on tour form the foundation of valuable lessons about the world around them. The world is a limitless classroom and a pre-summer trip puts a bow on the school year’s achievements, making them even sweeter.
