Students can work with a teacher to oversee their band, and the potential positive outcomes of pursuing this option include the opportunity to build friendships, communication skills, leadership, have a creative outlet, the potential to release songs on streaming platforms, compete in competitions, or even build an online following.

Being in a band also provides another environment and family atmosphere for band members to lean on. It can afford its members benefit enormously from participating in a team that breeds excellence, self-confidence and creativity, allowing students to be a part of a greater whole.

Students who start their own band can also be taught the ability to practice and learn to follow through. Lastly, it can provide a change for students to polish up or hone their musical abilities, as time can be put aside to practice or even learn new musical instruments.
