Band Director Information


When the student registers, he or she will be asked to list the email address of the their Director (that’s you 🙂
In a few weeks you will receive an email with your login credentials for the event because you have students in the event system who have listed your email address and you as their director. At that time you can log in and you will see a listing of your students and will have the opportunity to rank-order them and comment privately with your recommendation of each student. You will also see and approve/confirm as valid any chaperone who listed your email address as their Director.

**In the severe case a director is unable to provide evaluations, a school administrator or counselor can provide this information for the student. Just put their email in the registration.

Registration for band directors staying on campus for JSU Honor Band will occur after your students are accepted. TalentSpotz will notify you with this information closer to that date.
