This past July at Texas Bandmasters Association in San Antonio, I caught up with former music educator turned leadership guru, Jeremy Spicer. Jeremy is the owner of SASI – The Leadership People, LLC., a student leadership consulting firm focusing on the empowerment of young leaders.  Director's Choice and SASI have recently teamed up to offer Destination Leadership,  an exclusive customized leadership training seminar designed for your students as part of your travel itinerary.   

Below is an edited excerpt of my conversation with Jeremy from the TBA exhibit floor.  Check it out and learn how SASI’s leadership philosophy and workshops can be a great compliment to your overnight itinerary for your band, choir, orchestra or dance group.

Disney Youth Programs Unlock Student Potential

You may be familiar with Beyond the Clef, a podcast by music educators for music educators. We have expanded Beyond the Clef by creating a Travel Series since we all know travel can be a great way to recruit and retain students by offering them experiences they cannot get inside the classroom. I am excited to share with you a sneak peek at one of our first Travel Series Episodes featuring Dan Stuby, Sales Manager at Disney Youth Programs.

I sat down at TMEA this past February with Dan. Dan and Disney have been long time partners of Director’s Choice because they offer so many unique and inspiring opportunities for our performing groups. However, don't just take my word for it. Take a look at this excerpt from our conversation. For the full interview, watch or listen to the podcast here.
