Q: So, what’s a bandcoach ... a bus that carries a band?

A: Nah, I coach band kinda like a coach coaches a football team!

Q: What?!?

Well, a coach does the following for their team

So a conductor of a band is faced with the same considerations, especially a school band where the members are still learning their instruments. This means that as leader of the band, I am faced with making all of the above decisions and tasked with developing the band and strategies for success. I find it is better to treat band rehearsal like a coaching session rather than an opportunity to provide edicts about what will and won’t happen.

Does that explain it??
