"The Spark is a publication every teacher needs to read, absorb, and infuse in their own day-to-day teaching. If I would have had access to this publication as a young teacher perhaps I would have become better organized, more focused, with a better understanding of dealing with parents, colleagues, administration along with the daily “surprises” that occur with students at every age level."

I came across this book a couple of years ago. Gary and I went to undergrad school together so I made a point to order it. I have since used it in band methods courses, workshops, have given away over 20 copies to new directors, college students, and seasoned directors.
I highly recommend this wonderful little treasure between two covers. Get it, keep it near.Brent Colwell
