Advocating for your band or orchestra program with an administrator or superintendent can be an important necessity in determining your program's success. Perhaps your program is growing rapidly? Or an expensive piece of equipment needs to be replaced? Or perhaps scheduling constraints are making it difficult to recruit students to the band or orchestra? These are all legitimate concerns that can lead to tensions within a school or district that need to be addressed to ensure a program's success. However, it is also important that these matters be handled in a way that is beneficial for all parties without creating unnecessary tension or frustration. Here are some "Tips for Success" to consider when communicating with your administration.
