Re: Word of advice to HS directors mad about numbers
Having been both, I can truly say this is great advice. If the kids don't know you, they will say they are "scared" of you. The younger ones need to get to know you. One HS director I worked with lost half of the most talented class I ever had for this reason, and being a former HS director myself, I recruited them hard. At another school where I was the head director, I attended every class every day. It was exhausting, but it paid off with a huge HS band.
