Rite of String
Summary: Rite of String is a podcast about string orchestra education.
As directors, one of the challenges we face each year is retention and recruitment. We dedicate a great deal of time facilitating success for all our students, while at the same time maintaining a sense of culture and belonging that keeps the players coming back each year. We sit down in this episode with Ryan Ross, a high school director who has successfully explored a variety of ways to achieve these goals, including tackling the unique challenge of keeping students in orchestra across multiple campuses
While we are tasked with performing music at a high level, a truly successful and healthy program needs to feel like a family. There are many ways to create a classroom culture, and today's guest is an expert. Christy LaLonde talks to us about raising an "orchestra student for life" and walks us through the challenges of creating a family setting in a brand new program.
