Multi-instrumentalist help music ed admission?
My son is a junior in HS and plays both a string instrument and percussion (marching and classical). He wants to apply for music education next year (he really wants to be a high school band director). He is now talking about dropping orchestra next year and starting to learn a wind instrument instead, partly because he is interested and partly to help with college admissions. Is adding another instrument helpful, or should he stay the course with orchestra?
