Clark Band Featured in Southwestern Musician Magazine

Oct 01, 2015

An article written by Clark Middle School band directors Benjamin Katz, John Timpani and Scott Kennedy was published in the September issue of the Southwestern Musician Magazine.

The magazine’s editor approached the group about writing an article about how they incorporate enthusiasm and encouragement into the music classroom.

Titled, "The Kids Came to Play," the discussion centers around using positive motivation and removing fear from the student's perspective of music education.
