Benefits of Joining the Orchestra

Many musicians will tell you that the most important benefits of playing music are unique, abstract, and somewhat intangible. Music can touch your heart and soul in a way that other common extracurricular activities do not. Outside of these intangible qualities of music-making, there are some other benefits to learning to play an instrument. 

These benefits can include forming new friendships, learning teamwork, learning new skills, and exercising your brain. Check out the following pages for more information on the benefits of music education.
