What Band Directors, Just Like You, Are Saying About Band Leadership Seminars

"I am completely sold on Duane's Band Leadership Online "Academy." I call it an academy because it is so much more than simply instructional videos. Through the process of introducing students to the various types of Leadership characteristics, Duane is able to break down the concepts in a way that students can apply them and learn to develop their own philosophies of leadership. His 3 Essentials: Influence, Attitude and Servitude, are topics I reiterate daily and in turn help students navigate through the difficulties of being a student leader.

The best thing about Leadership Online is that I can use different components for different scenarios that happen in my program. It allows me to create a "tailor-made" leadership program that helps my students achieve the goals that they set.

It is definitely worth the time and financial contribution."

- Ryan Dukes | Band Director at Habersham Central High School - Greenville, South Carolina Area

" We loved this program so much, that we brought Duane in for a multi-school live seminar, the very next year! We did not expect too much from an online course, but we were mistaken! This was a great program as a stand alone program and also (as we did) as a supplemental Program/Foundation for our Silver Fox Band. The concepts of Service, Responsibility and Team/Family are certainly evident. As we explore how to expand Leadership and Family in our Band we certainly recommend and look forward to using Duane's Leadership Program in the future!!!"
- David Perez, Director of Bands | Jefferson/Silva High School

"Duane has designed a very solid course to help you promote your leadership in your band. A must have for every band program."
- Milton Joselyn, Director of Bands | John I. Leonard High School Jazz Band

"I love the open and free exchange of ideas and information. The course is well thought out and I feel provides a foundation for leadership in our program. I use the first couple videos for the full band this past week on our long week of camp. I think everything went really well! The students enjoyed the riddle game and we had some very good discussions during the other videos. I have kids coming into the room the past two days and hour early to continue the process on a volunteer basis. We just got done drawing the pictures and talking about likes and hopes. Great program!"- Benjamin Middleton, Director of Bands | Seckman High School

"Friends, here is an awesome leadership series to consider purchasing! Duane does great work and approaches leadership in a unique way that is understandable for teens! Check. It. Out. Yesterday morning went so well! We only got through the first session 'Setting the Tone for Leadership' because the discussion was SO good! It was a game changer! We did all the discussion you suggested in the director's guide and the kids really started to open up (in a productive way). I am so pleased and feel like we are moving forward in the right direction. The amount of time we spent together was good for the first session of 'change." - Erica Fleeman, Band Director - Horizon High School - Thornton, Colorado

"Your method of reaching people and getting a wanted reaction, goes hand and hand with teaching styles. It’s all the same info, but has to be delivered in a way each person can internalize it, digest it and feel comfortable with what they need to do. I appreciate your unique insights & watching this was timely and beneficial."
