In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Danny Rocks, former VP of Sales and Education at Alfred Publishing, discusses strategies on saving your music program from budget cuts. He stresses that when looking for funding you must be able to communicate effectively, much like an entrepreneur, about the real benefits of music education. You must become a visable resource in your community and be in constant contact with administration and funding groups to maintain a successful career as a music educator. It is extremely important to continue to build and nurture your support team at all times.
