Okay, so I am the new director at a 2A High School.
Zero band success for decades.
Cheerleader sponsor has explained to me on several occassions that I can meet band after school once the students have gone to their football practice for the boys, and after volleyball and then cheerleading practice for the girls. That would put us meeting our marching band 8pm to 10pm one day of the week, but no more. Is that normal at a 2A high school? I just made the change from 5A, 6A experience. Child endangerment/abuse??
We are pep banding for our 2 home games this season, but I'm looking to the future.
Stats for the district: 9 coaches, 1 band director.
