This week we start the process of bringing in a "coach" for each instrument section in the band. These coaches play professionally in the orchestras, pit orchestras, bands, and chamber ensembles around Atlanta. Most are also on faculty of one of our universities, and many teach a regular group of private students each week. They bring a depth of knowledge and provide the chance for some smaller group instruction than we can do in full band class.
These guest artists are funded through PBPA, so it is critical that we meet our financial/fundraising goals in order to continue providing these experiences.
