UpFront Q&A: Scott Rush

In 2003, Scott Rush, then director of bands at Wando High School in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, and Tim Lautzenheiser, noted motivational speaker and music advocate, had a long conversation on student teaching while Lautzenheiser was in town to do a workshop on student leadership.
That conversation continued between the two over the next few years, until Rush decided to put his thoughts to paper, resulting in the highly successful band director how-to manual, Habits of a Successful Band Director: Pitfalls and Solutions, first published by Focus on Excellence and later by GIA.
Under Rush's leadership, the Wando Bands were state marching champs for nine consecutive years, from 2005 to 2013, performed at the Midwest Clinic in 2007, and were awarded the Sudler Flag for concert excellence.
In this recent conversation with SBO, Scott Rush discusses some of the key elements of building a successful career in music education.
SBO: What was the impetus for writing Habits of a Successful Band Director?
Scott Rush: I didn't feel at the time that there was a nuts-and-bolts book that was available to band directors that they could go to as a resource.
