  • Teaching band in a small school presents a unique set of challenges. Clinicians will provide practical and proven strategies utilized by three successful small school band directors. Discussions will include managing program logistics, maintaining open lines of communication with administrators, developing parental and community support, and establishing realistically high standards.
