Like most teachers, the band director is responsible for lesson plans, grading, discipline, and the many other duties faced by those who have dedicated their lives to education. In addition, however, the band director is an administrator, fund-raiser, drill instructor, instrument repairman, conductor and "most important" a musician.
The director's mission is not only to instruct your child, but to inspire your child. Both your child and the band program as a whole will benefit greatly if you, as a supportive band parent, make the effort to become an ally of the director. The simplest way to build this relationship is to stay in touch. You'll want to attend any scheduled conferences, of course, but you should also feel welcome to phone or e-mail the director to ask about your child's progress.
Most directors will be more than happy to spend the time with you. Keep in mind that the band director may teach more children than any other faculty member in the school.
