Ep. 128: Slack For Extracurricular Communication With Jarrett Lipman

In this episode, I chat with Slack for extracurricular communication between directors, coaches, parents, and students with Jarrett Lipman. Jarrett is the band director for the Claudia Taylor Johnson High School in San Antonio, Texas and uses Slack as the main channel for communicating with his band members and parents. We actually recorded this episode while eating pizza at my house. He also gives us some insight on what it’s like to be a band director of such a high caliber band program. Buen provecho!
