Northeastern Band Vision

The Northeastern Band Program is designed to help young people develop life skills while learning about music. It is our goal to help each person to become the best they can be. Besides learning about music, we also focus on teaching students about responsibility, respect and commitment. They also learn about teamwork and self-discipline. We hope that each student will experience life transformation, looking back on their experience in band as an important part of their life which helped them to develop character, integrity and moral values.
