Joining a band with peers who are at a similar age and level can be exciting and fun. Having other people to play with can relieve stage fright and drown-out any musical imperfections. You don’t have to worry about missing a note when everyone else can keep the tempo moving for you. Playing in a group boosts confidence and helps to make practice and learning enjoyable.
Developing Social Skills
Community is just as crucial for children as it is for adults. Being a part of a group with individuals that share similar interests will help build and strengthen a connection to other people. Becoming part of a musical ensemble will help you find unexpected friends. Typically, friendships made while working in groups are built on support and camaraderie. People who feel that they have supportive friends are most capable of making it through hardships.
To go from working alone to working in a team can be challenging. It can be difficult to immediately sync with other's musically. Playing in a group helps to develop synchronization. To maintain harmony, bandmates and fellow students will work hard to play in tune and on time. Students will experience the success of working through differences to help each other grow, and find they can make great music together.
Playing in a group is great motivation for musicians to learn quickly and practice consistently. After all, you’ll want to sound good when the time comes to play in front of a crowd or your friends. Higher-level music groups even require placement auditions. This not only inspires better performance, it also builds a competitive spirit. While too much competition ruins teamwork, a healthy drive pushes everyone to work harder.
Big Picture Benefits
More than learning new skills, playing in a group offers lifelong benefits. In the big picture, you are creating memories with your group and learning life skills. Skills you can apply to a professional career or use in your free time. So, whether you end up creating a band or choose to join an ensemble, playing in a group will be a rewarding experience.
