Vivace Leadership Training

Student Leaders play a critical role in every ensemble. Effective leaders motivate their peers, communicate effectively, and positively impact program culture on and off the field. Through hands-on experiences led by nationally acclaimed educators, participants engage in immersive experiences that develop emotional awareness, interpersonal communication skills, and practical leadership capacities that will enhance their skills as leaders in their marching bands…and beyond!
