For a long time, the world of school band directors was largely dominated by men. This demographic has shifted over the years to include more women and increased diversity. Dr. Sue Creasap, professor emeritus and former associate director of bands at Morehead State University, leads a robust conversation that includes retired Jefferson County Schools band director Nan Moore, University of Louisville music professor and associate band director Dr. Amy Acklin, retired Fayette County Schools band director Lois Wiggins, and Harrison County Middle School band director Julie Lucky. They talk about changes in attitudes over the years, influential women they look up to, and challenges they've faced in their careers.
