This one especially!!! Great way to make friends with us band directors and get students. Everone wins. I personally like to do these during the school day, and I generally pay. (not the first time when you're getting business, but later when I call YOU)
8. Offer to teach a free masterclass to this person's low brass students in order to troll for prospective students. This is usually not a big problem is you are VERY flexible when making the appointment. (Most programs are burdened with Marching Contest and games at this time of year, so you might have to teach on some weird weeknight at 8 PM; you just have to be able to come whenever the teacher has time.
