I teach because of my passion for music and the influence that music and playing in band has had on my life.  Being a member of the band teaches teamwork.  You work together, you learn to trust each other to walk forward and backwark and have fun with friends while you do it.  You learn to grow from the adversary of winning and losing and you get exercise along the way.  You learn to manage your time, discipline and dedication.  And after its all said and done to take 50 students, train them to march and play their instruments well is a awesome feat that any band director would be proud of.
