Re: Do you care about Titles? Who has what title?
I had a percussion guy that thought he was insulted when he was called Assistant director, he was "Sir Lordship of Percussion", and his ego continues to hold him back, job after job.
I don't care. I'm the #3 guy. I get paid as much as the #2 guy. Both of us have the same title - Assistant Band Director. We don't have any extra staff aside from the 3 directors. Our colorguard class is run by the dance teacher, she writes the work and teaches it during the day, we handle teaching them drill after school. I guess you could call her the Colorguard Director.
Hey Yellowboard, something fun that doesn't really matter but everyone can discuss. How do you view different titles in this activity? Everyone knows Head Band Director, but how do you differentiate between Assistant Band Directors and Associate Band Directors? Colorguard Staff vs Colorguard Director? Percussion Director vs Assistant Band Director/Director of Percussion? If you don't have a dedicated percussion/colorguard person, does the "Director of Percussion"/"Colorguard Director" title fall to someone else, or does it just not appear anywhere?
Just curious what everyone does.
