Creating a Culture of Excellence in Your 2nd and 3rd Bands

Creating a Culture of Excellence in Your 2nd and 3rd Bands

The strength and depth of a program that has multiple bands depends on the vitality of its non-varsity ensembles. Many band programs have excellent varsity bands, but I believe that in the best band programs, every band is strong, whether there are two bands or ten. Band should be just as much fun, educational, and important for students in the non-varsity band as it is for those in the varsity ensemble.
