About John M. Denis

Hello and thanks for checking out my Patreon page! I'm so glad you've been enjoying the show, and I'd love to have you be a part of helping band directors everywhere be the best they can be.

What is Program Notes?

Program Notes is a show for new band directors (or those that just want a refresher) in the nuts and bolts of doing the job. I'm John Denis and I’m an assistant professor of music education, former band director, music nerd (and all around nerd) with a passion for helping band directors of all types and experience levels to succeed in their classrooms. I often have experienced guests on to talk band and share their wisdom with you the listener, in the same way many mentors have shared with me over the years.

What do I get for supporting the show?

I love helping out other music teachers, they are some of the best people around. All patrons get early access to the show via rss feed as well as access to Q&A mini-episodes on our patreon page. Check out the other rewards for tiers on the right (or below for mobile users).

How do I join?

If you are enjoying the show and think that it's been helpful, I'd be honored and ecstatic if you decided to support the show on a per-monthly basis. Feel free to support as much or as little as you want, every donation counts and even 1 dollar makes a difference in keeping the show on the air and helping your fellow band directors in the trenches of school life.

Stay awesome,
