Delivering music trips that deserve a standing ovation
Learning how to hit all the right notes is key in music mastery. However, technical skill isn’t the only thing that turns a student of music into a certified virtuoso. Performance rests at the core of any musical career, and it is crucial for any aspiring instrumentalist to learn how to command a crowd.

Think back to the best musical performances you have ever witnessed; the best play, concerto, or music festival you have ever attended. Why were they particularly memorable compared to others you had seen before? Is it because they had better instruments? Is it because they had a dramatic flair? Is it because the music’s performance was well-orchestrated?
The answer is simple: the best musical performances are those that have the most heart.
Pushing The Boundaries of Music Travel
Go Beyond Textbook Education
As musical directors, you have various options to enrich your music travel program: enlist your students in an awesome parade or simply take them on a unique learning experience with a world-renowned musician. Peak Performance gives you the opportunity to create a well-rounded musical performance that will bolster anything they learn in the academy.
Take your students out of the studio and into the real world. An unlimited number of musical recitals is no match to performing live to a crowd for the very first time. Music travel can either be performative or educational in nature.
More Than Just Skill
The ability to engage a crowd and captivate them is a much better trait than sheer instrumental proficiency. Technical skills can only take your students so far. Having the experience of wowing a festival crowd or being a part of a massive Thanksgiving parade will help develop skills that aren’t learned in the classroom.
Performance trips are a fantastic way to develop a sense of professionalism in your students. Here they will learn how to socialize with other performers and impress under pressure. It’s never too early to have your students join the big leagues.
The Benefits Of Musical Travel
On top of hands-on student training, musical directors are often responsible for booking band trips, choir trips, and other musical performances within the country and around the world. But it’s not always easy. As a band director, you have most likely experienced at least one of the following:
Burnout from juggling too many responsibilities
Uncertainty about a specific location, event, or competition
Not knowing where to start with the logistics of booking your students
Difficulty finding the right balance between quality and budget
Unfamiliarity with certain musical cultures

Create memorable experiences for your students
Reach new locations, both locally and internationally

Performance opportunities in the most coveted destinations and events
Meet and greet legendary musicians
How Students Can Benefit From Music Travel
Playing for their peers can make your students complacent. So what better way to encourage your students to play their hearts out than by giving them a tough crowd? Music travel serves as a great incentive to your proteges. Giving them a taste of world-class performance will make them want to step up their musical skill.
Music Trips = Unique Socialization
Spice up your student’s learning experience by giving them the opportunity to learn, grow, and share ideas with others during music travel. Whether it’s with fellow musicians, vetted professionals, or even fans, giving them a new social environment can do wonders for their confidence and personality. These unique social opportunities not only improve their musical ability but also foster their growth as individuals as they participate in different music cultures.
Musical Education Made Fun
Variety is key to dynamic learning. In-between lectures and recitals, take your students out on a music travel education program. Make music history and theory more exciting by allowing them to have in-person access to key museums, festivals, and events around the world. Seeing the international music industry outside the academic lens is key to shaping their career as performers.
Inspiration and Confidence
Most students of music don’t feel confident in their talent until they have the unique opportunity to perform in public. Music travel serves this purpose well. Doing a live show, joining a parade, and competing internationally are all great ways to solidify their identity as musicians. As they interact with seasoned professionals, they learn more about the music industry and pick up new tricks for shows.

It’s a great way to get your students’ names out in the open, without the pressure that comes with performing in more traditional venues.
