Embracing Administrative Leadership in Music Education

  • thumbnail for John Clinton
  • An administrator who is an effective leader is critical to the success of any music program. An administrator/leader in music education, whether this person is a supervisor, director of music or dean at a university, can make a significant and positive impact. Topics to be discussed include: Is The "Customer" (Students and Parents) Always Right?; Are Those Meetings That Important?; What Does It Take To Develop An Effective Music Program?; and Can You As The Administrator Survive on Reflected Glory?
