Yes, that’s right, Poland!
As a part of our look back/look forward for Be Part of the Band, my team and I recently sat down and reviewed our website and app stats. We were blown away by what we found and had no idea of the depth and breadth that this project had achieved. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that in the past months the website has had over 45,000 video plays from users in all 50 states and over 100 countries! The app has over 5,500 downloads and is averaging more than 100 video plays per day!
Yep, you read that right, over one hundred countries! It turns out we had significant traffic from places such as England, France, Australia, Brazil, Germany, France, Singapore, and beyond. Sure, North Korea still remains an opportunity for significant growth for us, but we put in a call to Kim Jong-un and it turns out that he does not allow the internet, so we will take a pass on this one.
This just goes to show that young people making music doesn’t stop at the doors of our practice facility, but extends beyond our borders and into virtually every space where young people gather to learn. The world may be in crisis, but in every corner of our planet young people of all races, colors, and creeds are learning to work together and make music.
Suddenly, I feel better.
