Though travel can be an intimidating prospect for directors and teachers, Matt Suddendorf, Choir Director at Deer Park Junior/Senior High School for Grades 6-12 in Cincinnati, Ohio, truly believes the benefits far outweigh the cost and challenges.
“Anything we as teachers can do for our students to open their eyes to how music shapes so many facets of our world, and how students can keep music alive after they move on into the next chapter of their lives, is critically important,” Suddendorf said, noting the Deer Park Music Department has been working with ETI since the Deer Park Marching Band & Guard's first trip to Walt Disney World in 1996. “From the beginning, ETI has proven they are a leader in the group travel industry through effective communication, prompt and clear problem resolution, and consistent delivery of a top-notch product.”
