    Dr. Owen Bradley, Band Director at North Port High School, Joins the Club

    Dr. Owen Bradley, Band Director at North Port High School, Joins the Club

    For the past 20 years of his 32-year teaching career, Dr. Owen Bradley has been the  band director at North Port High School in Sarasota County. Looking back on his career choice, he says he can't remember a time when he didn't want to a band director and now, as his final years in the profession draw to a close, he is reflecting on the changes that have occurred: "In the past, the most meaningful thing about my job was making music, now...it's about the relationships I get to build with students."
    How has technology impacted his profession and the students?
    Who else can say they took their band to Italy 6 weeks before a pandemic broke out?
    Should Music Performance Assessment scores be used in music teacher evaluations?
    How does a young band director build trust, respect, and classroom discipline?
    All that and more on this week's episode of the Suncoast Culture Club podcast.
