Mentoring ProgramWe recall the positive influence of older band players who served either as teachers, mentors, or role models during the early years of our playing careers. With the idea of sharing our talent with younger players the Mentoring Program was started in 2008.
ASB players who participate in Mentoring Program work closely with students, their parents, and their band and orchestra directors. In addition to providing a “private lesson” environment, ASB Members foster a supportive and encouraging relationship with their student musicians. Participating students are offered the opportunity to visit ASB rehearsals.
Student musicians interested in participating in the ASB Mentoring Program are asked to make a request through their individual band and orchestra directors. The directors would then contact the ASB office by phone (512 345-7420) or email where participating band members will be matched with student musicians.
