Welcome to After Sectionals, the podcast about all things band recorded when it's fresh on our minds. We come to you from the Stiles MS band hall - home of chickens and lost tuners. Join our staff (Darcy Vogt Williams, Jenna Yee) as we talk band pedagogy, talk smack, and everything in between right after sectionals.
AS 521 : The Good, The Bad, and The Runny
In this episode we talk about some of the great things happening in our program, some of the stinky, and other nonsense.
AS 520 : For the Young Teachers
In this episode we talk about things to focus on if you are still in college or early in your teaching career that will benefit your band hall.
AS 519 : Solo Contest + Snowpacalypse
In this episode we verbal vomit about the craziness of our Texas snow storm plus brainstorm about solo contest.
AS 518 : Ear Training
In this episode we talk anecdotally about the lack of ear training we are discovering through online band.
AS 517 : Mixed Classes – In-Person & Virtual
In this episode we talk about some of the strategies we use to keep a healthy pace in our classes with students divided across homes and the band hall.
AS 516 : Plan It Out
In this episode (that feels a little more old school) we talk through scheduling and things that need to be on our to-do list for the next couple of weeks with our beginners.
Incredible resource for music education students, early career teachers, and old pros. I love feeling like I’m attending a staff meeting of one of the best middle school band programs in the country! The conversational style helps this very enjoyable to listen to.
Great insight, very real, relatability funny, and easy on the ears.
The insight from your Emmagram episode (plz excuse my spelling) was the game winner for me. The application of what you learn in teaching your student into each of y’all a lives is a breath of fresh air. I would love to see more of how each of y’all use daily challenges outside of the band to help sharpen your skills inside the band hall with the students personal development as they are become performers.
Keep it guys!
Hello from AZ!
I remember hearing Stiles MS at the Midwest Clinic in 2015 and being amazed. A couple years later I see the After Sectionals paperclip video pop up and I was hooked. They are fantastic educators that have a great perspective. Texas and Arizona are different band worlds, but there’s so much that can be done well wherever you are. I’m always learning something new from them or hearing that I’m on the right track!
