Best Practices from the Podium
“Best Practices from the Podium”. This course is concurrent with the Adult Band Camp session at Birch Creek August 16-19. As a performing member of the Adult Band, participants in this course will be in a unique position to observe veteran teachers Jim Stombres, Steve Sveum and Chip bring their many years of experience and obvious passion to the podium to make the band the best it can be in very short order. Discussions will be more practical than philosophical. “What works and what doesn’t work?” will be the guiding question of the weekend.
