Jeff Girard, the band specialist at Midwest Sheet Music joins me to offer some thoughts about conducting, band music, and copyright law from the perspective of a music retailer.
Jeff Girard is a wind band conducting specialist at Midwest Sheet Music in St. Louis who has been working with wind band literature for 20 years now. He’s particularly adept at tracking down hard to find, obscure and foreign wind band titles, as well as finding the hidden gems amongst all the hundreds of new wind band works published each year. He also directs a local community band, BandTogether, during the year.
