Curated from Rocky Point Productions –
What does an experienced band director wish he had known going into his first year? Here’s the account from one person, things to consider for the brand new or future band director.
My name is Rocky Ankeny and I am the Assistant Director of Bands at Panther Creek High School. I marched Cadets in 2013, 2014, & 2015; I also just graduated from UNCG in May of 2018 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. This is my letter/speech to all future band directors going into year one. There’s a TON I’ve learned in 6 months, and I hope to share anything useful to those getting ready!
