Re: Region Band Selections
I do not think there is only one piece on the PML that is suitable for your band either. I believe this works both ways. Guest clinicians do not know everyone in the area and what they plan to play at UIL. As stated earlier, bring it up at your region meeting. I think this is something that can easily be hashed out within your region, or even simply the coordinator selecting (communicating with) the clinician.
Just my $.02
Can we please stop selecting pieces on the PML for region band?????
It has happened multiple times that I have pre-selected my UIL tunes and then the region clinician has pick one of my pieces for the concert. I know other directors get annoyed by this as well.
I really don't want my kids playing it again. Now I have to find a piece that fits my band all over again.
There are plenty of amazing pieces that are not on the PML that clinicians can select. Please Please Please!
