    Fully agree with Randall’s section on age bias. The obsession to look & act young is so prevalent, with some leaders being encouraged to dumb down the music so less skillful musicians can participate. “They fit our demographic” is the common phrase. Any young leader considering long term success can’t afford to take a pass on getting a firm grasp of theory because the pendulum will eventually swing the other direction.

    Where is it we look for all these wonderful positions? Though I live in a heavily populated area, AGO or other membership based organizations seem to be the only resource for new work.

    Otherwise it was a great article and indicative of the work I am currently doing.

      Peebles -

      Most position ads are online now, so a google search is your best bet. You might try churchjobs.tv, but I don’t know anyone personally who has used it.
