Someone told me that if you receive a band scholarship from another school and you show it to the college band director, of the school you are going to be apart of, will either try to match your scholarship reward or offer you more money is that true? or will the band director just tell you thats good for you but your part of this band?

Thats new to me. I haven't heard anything about collegiate band directors matching scholarship offers let alone award you more then what were probably going to give you in the beginning just because of another offer.
Schools work with a budget...and they have a set amount which they award to students. Its college not Walmart.
I seriously doubt a band director would match another school offer but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. If anything the band director would look at you funny for the simple fact you come talking to him about what another school is offering you.
Whoever told you that lied lol. As was stated earlier, the band gets a set amount allotted strictly for scholarships. You get what you earn through your audition.
Who told you that? rotfl
depends how bad you are wanted I suppose.. I know PV does that a lot.. "show me how much the Ocean is giving you and I'll do it or better" I've heard that statement before out of their mouth..
If a school has to do that, that's sad.
It depends on the budget and the needs for the band program
Some schools say that and when u get ur paperwork, its the same as normal.

I've seen it-

if you are a dawg and an asset to the program then you can and will be recruited, especially if you are a true percussionist, or play an entire instrument family...

it's primarily about the needs of the program that you are in or trying to go to...

no band director will just let a first chair just go..from elementary to professional musicians it's always a debate


but if you go and there is someone as good as or better than you then...

Sooooooo.....schools are matching scholarships like Lowe's? LOL. never heard of such...may it's a new recruitment tool "shrugs"
