Q. Why is music important to you?
A. Gary: Music is important to me because it lets people express themselves and brings people together. I would recommend that students join the band because not only does it give you a chance to meet new friends, but gives you an experience and knowledge you apply to other things or experiences in your life.
Kendal: I believe music is important because it helps you escape from a bad day. I think it is amazing to be able to read music and it is wonderful to listen to.

A. Gary: I plan on attending Ohio State University to major in Math Education, with a pre-med intent and a possible minor in music.
Kendal: My plan is to attend Youngstown State University and major in Nursing.
