For the past 20 years of his 32-year teaching career, Dr. Owen Bradley has been the band director at North Port High School in Sarasota County. Looking back on his career choice, he says he can't remember a time when he didn't want to a band director and now, as his final years in the profession draw to a close, he is reflecting on the changes that have occurred: "In the past, the most meaningful thing about my job was making music, now...it's about the relationships I get to build with students."
How has technology impacted his profession and the students?
Who else can say they took their band to Italy 6 weeks before a pandemic broke out?
Should Music Performance Assessment scores be used in music teacher evaluations?
How does a young band director build trust, respect, and classroom discipline?
All that and more on this week's episode of the Suncoast Culture Club podcast.
