Teaching Band in the Small School

  • thumbnail for Jason Steele
  • The clinic will deal with the challenges and rewards that small school band directors face. In it I will describe various techniques for teaching all levels of students every day, and discuss the benchmarks that need to be set to give the students a proper educational experience. I will also cover various materials used in the education of each grade level. The importance of the band director and the band program in the community will also be discussed.
