The Band Director's Lessons About Life: Volume 1 - 50 Parables on Life's Performance Cycle
Narrated by Donald Lee5 hr 59 min
It’s a cross between Chicken Soup for the Soul, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, and Conversations with God. If you liked any of those books, you’ll love this one.
In The Band Director’s Lessons About Life, author Donald Lee draws on his decades as both a band director and religion teacher to create modern-day parables from the classroom. People of any religious persuasion—or none—will be delighted and inspired by how these band-room vignettes shine a spiritual light on everyday experiences. The parables are short enough to read in the bathroom yet deep enough to ponder for days.
Every little event has a spiritual dimension—tuning the flute section, a terrible performance, a broken clarinet, and even the ugly band uniforms. You’ll recognize the characters, chuckle at their misadventures, and maybe even learn something about yourself. If you’ve been a kid, if you love music, this book’s for you!What People Are Saying About, "The Band Director's Lessons About Life".
