The book is based on the premise, “You Can’t Lead Others Until You Lead Yourself,” and is a book for ALL students. The activities and lessons in the book are not to take away from incredible music-making, but to invest in the premise that we’re in the music and people business. Our collaborative music-making is richer with more depth and meaning when we experience it with people that we care about and invest in. The book allows you to tangibly measure HOW you’re investing in the lives of your students – not just “I care about them,” but we are working together on these specific qualities to create a Culture of Excellence. Young people make beautiful music, but MUSIC makes beautiful young people.
There is also a Teacher Edition that includes the material in the Student Workbook as well as specific activities for the DIRECTOR.
In music programs across the country, student leadership is often thought of in terms of titles, authority status, section leader positions, and being in charge of others—a responsibility assumed by only a select few. But what if we reframed and broadened the idea of leadership to include all students as leaders of their own pathway in life?
Band director Scott Rush and leadership legend Tim Lautzenheiser join forces to create Pathway to Success, a dynamic and engaging resource that fosters the leadership qualities of every student, not just the chosen few. This workbook guides students through ten sequential levels as they journey up the metaphorical mountain of self-leadership.
Along the way, students will encounter lessons, activities, stories, quotes, and questions that address the key qualities of any effective leader: communication, attitude, honesty, trust, integrity, self-discipline, goal setting, relationships, cooperation, loyalty, selflessness and one of the most important topic’s for today’s students: EMOTIONAL HEALTH.
Upon reaching the summit, students are challenged to create a “moonshot”—to set a goal and achieve something that has never been done before!
True leadership begins with self-reflection in each and every student. All students can benefit when they see themselves as their own best leaders, and therein lies the foundation of a culture of excellence. Pathway to Success is a groundbreaking leadership program designed to inspire student growth and enhance any band, choir, or orchestra program—and beyond.
