Adventures In Band Building: How To Turn a Less-Than-It-Could-Be Into a More-Than-It-Should-Be

  • thumbnail for Thomas McCauley
  • This session is designed for young, professional band directors, or university students considering this noble profession. The title of the session is taken from my book of the same name. It is hoped that each attendee will come away from this session with new ideas and suggestions to increase both the size and quality of their band programs.
