Re: Interviewing prospective percussion directors
As a percussion director for 13 years, the thing I do most is organize and equip the percussion section, set up/build/and maintain the electronics and sound system, arrange music, repair/build things daily (fix wheels, restring mallet instruments, change and tune heads, the occasional build of an uncommon instrument, etc). That said, those are relatively separate from the teaching aspect. You need to have someone who is a team player and willing to be flexible with scheduling. Someone who has experience teaching and good references is a must. Check the references.
