CUMBERLAND â€“ There are plenty of good reasons for teaching instrumental music and chorus in secondary schools, and the students enrolled in them are more than happy to share a few.
â€śOther classes teach independence and therefore cannot compare with band and chorus classes,â€ť says Kristen Rodriguez of Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket. â€śIf someone fails an English test and another person receives a perfect score, the person who aced the test is not affected by the person who failed it. Unlike other classes, band and chorus teach the value of interdependence.â€ť
