Remember your first day of band? Students at Page Middle School shared what they looked forward to in band class at the beginning of the school year. As we start the new year, remember to encourage the young musicians around you and help them keep the enthusiasm they feel for music making! #iplayhere
Meet Pam! Pam has been part of A&G's team for just over 15 years! The joy and inspiration of music has wound itself within Pam and her family, taking root. Pam raised two children, both involved in school band where they fell in love with music and made friends they'll always have. The rewards of putting instruments in kid's hands is why Pam plays here. #iplayhere
