Our guest for this episode was Dan Berard, Director of Bands at Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins, Colorado. We discussed how Dan has built a thriving band program at a brand new school and learned about how a program in music technology and media arts has helped the music at program reach more students, broaden the learning opportunities available, and enhance the musical experiences of all involved.

Some of the links mentioned in the show are listed below. Mr. Berard will be a featured speaker at this summer’s College Band Director’s National Conference Band Education Symposium at Arizona State University
