Complete Band Director Workshop Visits Stanton's Friday, June 18, 2010
Wednesday evening,Â band directors attending The Complete Band Director Workshop at Capital UniversityÂ were treated to the sheet music equivalent ofÂ amusement park exclusive ride time. Snacks and beverages were provided andÂ attendees had the opportunity to shop for new music for their band programs (including the latest new issues), draw on the expertise and insightÂ of Stanton’s instrumental staff, and share stories, ideasÂ and comraderie. ThisÂ annualÂ after-hours event is a workshop highlight for both the directors and the Stanton’s staff.
Other workshopÂ features include working with workshop director and clinician James Swearingen, guest clinicians Peter Boonshaft and Sean O’Loughlin, performances byÂ featured school band programs, and theÂ 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,Â as well as sessions on specific topics – The Complete Band DirectorÂ Workshop providesÂ a fun,Â practical professional development opportunity.
