Being a member of a high school band can lead to more than a music scholarship to college. The skills it teaches, including non-musical principles such as discipline, self-confidence, and being a team player, are lessons that can be used for life, according to a recent story in Model D, an online magazine about Detroit, that took a look at the skills gained by local high school marching band students.

Some former band students went on to work in other fields like mathematics and law, the story found, noting that after high school, some even received music scholarships to continue pursuing their passion. Some even went on to be professional musicians.
