As a primarily small school director all of my career I was always aware of the need to build and keep a large number of kids in the band program. It was always a double edged sword. Budgeting for enough instruments, uniforms, and travel expenses was a continuous challenge. Having the edge of a big competitive band was mostly rewarding but the balancing act was difficult between discipline and the soft touch that let your kids know that you supported and loved them. I guess my philosophy was "Easy Does It". How do you directors see your philosophy?
