High School Credits O.O

I'm in grade 8 at the moment and I was wondering if you could get credits for playing good at saxophone... I'm into it but I was just planning ahead to see if playing will help me when I get into university. I was just wondering how you might get credits for playing at saxophone. Please Help!

    I don't know of any high credits you can get, but you can audition for Honor Bands in your area and play in Solo competitions as well. If you make it into a State Honor band or do well at the Solo competitions, you can put it on your college application...I take it you're looking to be a Music Major of some type?

    Unless you play at a band the community college in your area--you can get college credit that way.

    How many credits you can get changes from high school to high school, but playing in the school marching, concert, or jazz band will get you a few credits at most high schools. ~Brad
