A Word from our Friends...

Studies show that students who take part in musical programs score better on standardized tests. Many successful individuals in the business world also are very talented musicians that continue to play part-time or as a hobby. If you are a musician that also has aspirations to work in an executive position in a large corporation, get connected with the top executive search firms and potential employers.

Playing an instrument in the Bach Society Orchestra is different than other extra-curricular activities. Music instruments and equipment can be very expensive, some student organizations dedicate a good portion of their budget to get new gear every couple of years. You can save money on your equipment when you buy from a wholesaler that uses Doba or other drop-ship solutions to sell their products for less.
