A couple of weeks ago, I was researching resources for a middle school band director who was trying find ways to teach young band members in an online setting. That's when I stumbled across Chad Dempsey's YouTube channel, the Hey Band! Network. I watched an excellent interview by Chad with a wonderful middle school band director in Texas, Dorina Kingston.
I immediately Facebook-stalked Chad and said, "Hey, that was a great interview! We've got to show this to the Wind Conductor network." I was excited when he said yes.
This is a great series. You definitely need to check this out. In the interview we talk about some of the highlights and we even talk about how Chad is using social media and the online platforms for recruiting 8th graders and auditioning leadership for the 2020-21 school year. You'll definitely want to watch this interview!
