On this episode of Music on Purpose, Eric Hale, Director of Bands at Bourbon County HS in Paris, Ky, joins me to talk about how he has been able to build a state champion band. He discusses the steps to follow to get band programs to the next level. He also discusses the positives and negatives to the way the state of Kentucky is doing the concert festival and gives his opinions on WGI Winds. Eric is a very passionate music educator and very real on this podcast. His sense of humor makes this a fun as well as an extremely educational podcast.
