The International Board created the project at Midwest Band & Orchestra Clinic and this is the eighth series of articles under “Teaching Tips”, “The Profession” and “Repertoire” topics. All articles will remain on the PBM International website as a resource for directors, so please share and consult the previous submissions under the EO tab. I hope you each enjoy a restful summer and find these ideas helpful!
