Why Join?

  1. Music-You get to study something that you do everyday!  Not only study but also perform.  The band performs at many local events and concerts!  
  2. Resume-You get to put your involvement with the band on your resume.  Perfect for colleges and universities looking to see how well rounded you are. Especially if you are involved all four years of high school. 
  3. Leadership-There are many leadership opportunities within the band.  Again, great for your resume.   
  4. Play sports? No problem!   The band practices and performs after sports activities are over.  Contact the director with specific questions.
  5. Schedule-See our sample schedule to see when we practice and perform.  We do have a one week band camp in August.  It is not as time consuming as sports.  If you wish to do both you can as fall rehearsals are at night and Saturday mornings.  These rehearsals finish the last week of October. 
  6. Trips-Yes we take trips. From parades and school performance tours to 3-4 day spring band trips to compete nationally! 
  7. Friendships-Form long lasting friendships in an environment free from hazing and where students come together to make MUSIC!   
  8. Future-Many students leave Amity and peform in college pep and marching bands such as UCONN, University of Hawaii, Michigan and many others.  Since colleges look at your performing arts involvement, even studens who don't play after Amity have used their experience in band to help them get into the college of their choice.
