Re: Band in trouble
We may find ourselves having a different sort of band. Maybe small ensembles rather than a large band.
I still think we need to convince officials that music and art are important parts of the curriculum.
The school where I retired from (band director) five years ago and where my daughter now works may go to a schedule next year where 1/2 of the students only attend on Monday and Wednesday while while the other half attend Tuesday and Thursday. I can't imagine band as we knew it functioning in that situation. You better stay abreast of what your school is planning, or should I accept the fact that things will never be the same?
