I met this guy at all state this past weekend. He has severe issues with focusing and a lot of times would get distracted in the middle of a conversation. BUT, when we were in rehearsal he was the most intent on focusing on whatever was going on. I asked him before the concert about it. He said “I can’t focus very well and I get distracted, except when I’m in band or playing my trombone. It’s just like a whole other universe.” And I think that is the coolest thing. This is the type of thing that music can do for people and this is why I want to be a music educator. I want to introduce someone to music and give them the tools to have their life changed in awesome ways. Music is amazing, and anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.
