Leadership Clinic

 

CLINIC

Information

The Leadership Clinic generates a great deal of spirit and positive attitudes, but what’s more important is that the students come home with significant knowledge and skills they can use in assisting their directors to build better bands. In addition, students learn how to transfer what they learned to others. The curriculum is fresh and new every year, making it practical for students to return again and again!
