In this episode we talk about the structure of our private lessons program, how to sell lessons to your community, priorities within the lessons, hiring lesson teachers, etc.
Note: While not all band programs are fortunate enough to have a private lessons program, this episode still covers topics like how to build a culture of WANTING lessons within your community and approaching the money talk with your parents.
In this episode, Darcy and Jenna revisit many of your questions concerning what tuners we use, why we prefer those, how we utilize them in 6-8 band, and why we think they are important to our pedagogy.

In this episode we talk about kids that are too involved to be in band… or stay in band.
If you enjoy our podcast, take 2 seconds to share it with a friend or 15 seconds to review us on iTunes… Okay maybe a solid minute for the review. Your word of mouth helps band directors like you find our voice with which to commiserate, learn, and just relax.
Thank you for sharing your car, band hall, and earbuds with us. #trypod
