The Band Room Podcast

Dear Bandies,
In 2017, I started the Band Room Podcast (BRP), a podcast to increase awareness of concert band/wind ensemble music and its people: composers, conductors and music educators, in hopes of inspiring music students and teachers alike.

In the beginning I was producing BRP out of the Toronto Reference Library, using their equipment, and now producing out of my home/on the road with a basic USB microphone. This podcast is a labor of love - I taught myself basic audio skills and worked hard to create what I think is a unique experience. It’s always been self-funded and self-motivated, which has allowed BRP to retain its independence but has also limited my travel, equipment and coverage.

Since 2017, I’ve interviewed many wonderful music educators, conductors and composers (Dr. Gillian MacKay, Cait Nishimura, Dr. Jason Caslor, Sharon Fitzsimmins and Linda Wharton) and featured many great composer’s music.

(Season 2 Guests, Top, Left to Right | Cait Nishimura, Jonathan Dagenais, Linda Wharton | Bottom | Dr. Mark Hopkins, Dr. Jason Caslor, Sharon Fitzsimmins)

I’m asking now for help to fund the future of BRP: to help me travel for more interviews, purchase better equipment, and allow me the time and resources to do the work I love to do. My goal is to expand my output, developing resources for music teachers and ensure that the podcast has a future , while maintaining BRP’s independent voice.

You can find BRP at, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Stitcher, or your preferred podcast app.

Thank you so much for listening to BRP and for your support into the future!
