Testimonials from Band Directors

Dynamic Design for Total Program Success helped me to really clarify my thinking about so many different aspects of how my program was running! Jeff and Bobby made it easy to sift through the clutter and really dial in on what was working and what could be done better. I can't recommend this course highly enough, no matter what stage your career is in.

I am so thankful for The Dynamic Design for Total Success. for me, it was a shared experience for discovering my own band.  With the guidance of Jeff and Bobby, I now have a clear vision of where we are and where we want to go. This is HUGE!  I have shared this info with our students, parents, staff and administration and we have a collective clue resulting in increased financial support, a Superior with Distinction Rating at SCBDA Concert Band Performance Assessment, Outstanding Performance Award and a performance at Disney World and smiles.  My proudest moment, however, and result of the communication part of this class, was during the awful flood that hit Columbia, SC in October 2015.  In the middle of all of the destruction, with one call to our drum major, Emily gathered the band, set-up and ran a highly organized flood relief center at the school.   A necessary real life use of our daily work.  That's pretty cool! Thanks for this opportunity!

Being a part of the inaugural class to go through the "Dynamic Design for Total Program Success" coursework was an eye-opening experience.  It forced me to take a thorough and critical look at our program and justify what worked well and what areas we needed to improve in.  I highly, highly recommend this for any music educator who is interested in seeing immediate personal and professional growth and success.  Bravo to Jeff and Bobby on a great program!

You guys have allowed my design team to really grow/expand/have great conversations that wouldn’t have happened before.  In 5 years we are going to look back on this and realize a "turning point" in the program was access to this material.
