Reply To: Building a new band room… Suggestions?
Took a graduate course with Peter Boonshaft this summer. He advises against the ‘tiered seating’ design with different levels. Also, if you set up so that students are arched out and facing a corner instead of a front wall, it allows for easier storage of percussion, and more seating. Plus it gives you more flexibility to ‘mix it up’ with walking around the room, changing seating locations, etc.
