I was a 4-year trombone player for the marching band and concert band.
Currently I am a sophomore accounting major at California University of Pennsylvania.
I would say being in band had two huge impacts on my life. First, it gave me great confidence in anything I do. Being on a stage and on the field, you know all eyes are on you. Being the center of attention so much makes it normal and much easier to do in the future. The second impact would be the leadership skills I've developed. Even though I wasn't a drum major or in any technical leadership role, I felt that people followed my lead, and that helped me develop the leadership skills that I still use to this day.
