About the Author

Greg Metcalf has taught and fished in beautiful Washington State for over thirty years. During that time his bands have attained many successes and received numerous awards and accolades. His fishing has not reached as high a level but his fish ‘stories’ have come close…..according to his friends. Greg has received "Teacher of the Year" in the Kennewick School District, "Golden Acorn Award" in the Everett School District, and was inducted into the "Hall of Fame" for Washington Music Educators Association and "Hall of Fame" for his alma mater, Pasco High School. His performance history has included Central Washington University's award winning jazz band, under the direction of John Moawad, The Stan Kenton Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, Fifth Avenue and Paramount Theatres, and backing a number of artists including Johnny Matthis, Bernadette Peters, The Temptations, Linda Ronstadt, Barry Manilow, Natalie Cole and others. Teaching has played an important part in Greg's life, but so has Washington State. Whether hiking in the Cascade Mountains or meandering along the Puget Sound, Greg finds contentment in Washington's beauty. His experiences in the classroom and the great outdoors have helped him in penning his tales.

Format: Paperback
This book is a hilarious collection of stories based upon over 30 years experience teaching music. Author Greg Metcalf has a deft (please note that is spelled with an "e", not an "a") sense of humor and is able to provide an intriguing and inciteful glance at the world of a middle school band director. His stories strike chords that will make you laugh until you cry, even if you've never played in a band or had a child in band. If you are a band student,the parent of a band student or a band director, this book is a "must read", if only for the list of excuses it provides (for use by students and for warning to parents and band directors everywhere).

This is a wonderful book! I could see most of these happening in some way...

I would have given this book a score of I, but most people probably don't know that in music a I is SUPERIOR!

But I know that Metcalf would NEVER let his bands sound the way he made them sound.... The only other problem: It ended!
