Boys play . . . music.
In the rehearsal space—the music classroom, so to speak— boys learn that, just as with athletic skills development, the adage "practice makes perfect" takes on real meaning. What happens in the studio is the same as what happens on the field. Playing in an ensemble takes teamwork; instead of working together to score, boys play individual instruments to create a harmonious sound.
In playing an instrument, boys have a platform for expression, and a variety of groups offer myriad opportunities for musical articulation. For a musician, "game time" comes during public performances. Gilman boys have the opportunity to bring their "A" game at winter and spring concerts and various events throughout the year.
