The band movement in America has played a prominent role in the development of its cultural life. The large number of bands participating in numerous school and civic activities each year is a criterion by which one may ascertain the place of bands in the culture of America today. The degree to which bands have contributed to this culture is evidenced by the growth of the movement itself, as well as the demands placed upon it. Sunderman stated that in a survey made in 1943 there were over 2,000,000 players registered in approximately 25,000 bands and 40,00 orchestras in the American public schools alone.
