What are the characteristics of an effective department? What is the role of individual departments within schools? What is the relationship between departments and the management of the school? The observant reader will notice that, in posing these questions, I have not referred specifically to the music department. This is not a sin of omission, but rather a way of pointing out that many of the issues and attitudes that impact upon a music department are those that affect all departments irrespective of subject. Common issues simply acquire specific subject focus.
