Here at the Lincoln Trojan Band program, I strive to create two things out of every student: well-adjusted members of society and educated consumers of music. To simplify, that means all students will become two things once they leave after four years: great people, and great musicians. These goals are attainable by every student and are intertwined so that the student can accomplish one goal by working on the other.
As a music educator, I whole-heartedly believe that my job is not to produce only music majors, just as the football program’s job is not to produce only NCAA-bound athletes. Rather, our goal as educators is to produce well-functioning adults and members of society, so that they may be equipped to handle whatever profession they decide to devote their lives to after high school. Through band, and through the two points in the first paragraph, your child will see large amounts of growth and progress towards this ultimate goal.
