Wednesday evening, band directors attending The Complete Band Director Workshop at Capital University were treated to the sheet music equivalent of amusement park exclusive ride time. Snacks and beverages were provided and attendees had the opportunity to shop for new music for their band programs (including the latest new issues), draw on the expertise and insight of Stanton’s instrumental staff, and share stories, ideas and comraderie. This annual after-hours event is a workshop highlight for both the directors and the Stanton’s staff.
Other workshop features include working with workshop director and clinician James Swearingen, guest clinicians Peter Boonshaft and Sean O’Loughlin, performances by featured school band programs, and the new music reading sessions – marching band with Stanton’s Kent White and jazz band with Stanton’s Ben Huntoon. Truly comprehensive in addressing all aspects of the band program – marching band, concert band and jazz band, teaching techniques and insights, as well as sessions on specific topics – The Complete Band Director Workshop provides a fun, practical professional development opportunity.
