Let's Talk Band!
- Once upon a time, band directors met at the local music store on Saturday mornings. Over coffee they would share their band directing experiences and concerns in an effort to find answers and solutions. In this interactive session (using a live Twitter feed), clinicians will offer their advice and solutions based on their expertise and experience.
