Band has been a part of my life since I was 12. I have been able to grow as a person while growing with music, along with growing with the people in band. This photograph shows my love for music, my admiration for band and my appreciation for everyone I’ve met and bonded with because of it.
And I am not alone. To almost all teenagers, music plays a role in some way or another. Band helps unify people and teach them teamwork, and music as a whole allows teenagers to better connect with themselves, their peers and the world around them.
