How Can Concert Band and Marching Band Experience Help Pay for College Expense?

Dear Parents and Students,

Do you know what prevents many High School students from getting a college degree? 

It’s not grades.  It’s not test scores.  It’s not lack of extracurricular activities.  It’s MONEY.  You can have the best grades, best test scores, and involved in everything but if you have no money, you can’t go to college.  Sure there are scholarships and loans but who wants fill out all those forms, go to interviews, get letters of recommendations and spend years paying those loans back? 

The remedy?  Join the Concert and Marching Bands.  Many colleges give tuition waivers and pay for their students to be in their bands.  Don’t believe it?  Go search the internet yourself.  Better yet, see Mr. Carlos and enroll in the Band Program.  To get to the college band, you need to get through the high school band first.
