Not just beginning band.

This is a great podcast. I’ve been listening to this for a few months now, and there are so many great tips and ideas and other resources here for any band teacher at any level. Give this a listen, see what I mean.

Incredibly Helpful

I'm a new HS band director and I'm only 3 episodes in but every episode has helped me so much, especially the intonation one. Intonation is something I really struggle with and this episode provided so much valuable information. I like that you give specific ideas and tips rather than vague overarching ideas. Right now I'm in survival mode and I need specific tips, so this is perfect.
