Awesome band podcast
I loved this podcast. As a vocalist who teaches beginning/middle school band it was great to get some practical tips I could use with my percussionists to potentially find some more love for the Mallets. I also love the band pick of the week. It really breaks down why a piece is worth being picked and I even had one in my library already but had dismissed it because it had a ridiculous name. I plan on giving it a try. I look forward to future episodes.
