What is The Yellow Board?

to be an online resource for insight and instruction, and to foster interactive, real-time discussion of
current music and education issues.

What are the posting rules?

names of schools, band directors, or band programs may be removed. Posts that discuss possible
or rumored band job openings may also be removed. Band directors who are not comfortable with
their name or school being mentioned in a post or thread are encouraged to contact the board
administrator to have the post or thread removed (No questions asked!).
