Concord's jazz director Steve Peterson knows that there's much more to learning than just the lessons or the music. It's about forging relationships and building trust between one another.
If you got a chance to watch the Concord High School band perform at the Lerner during the Elkhart Jazz Festival, you witnessed just how tight of a group these kids are, both musically and socially. Just like any sports or academic team, the quality of performance increases dramatically when everyone knows they can count on one another before, during and after the performance.
