About the Book
It’s tough to find your way in the no-man’s-land between traditional religious dogma and New Age “woo-woo”. Spiritual author and speaker Donald Lee masterfully reveals a common-sense and universal view of spirituality in his new book of modern-day parables.

Do you feel adrift in a sea of conflict? Do you feel your life needs direction? Has your spiritual journey got you lost in the woods? “The Band Director’s Lessons About Life” offers simple advice and relatable stories from your friendly, neighborhood band director. Using music as a metaphor for life, each little parable begins with a story from school and ends with a reflection on the spiritual meaning of the story.

How to:
  • Find your path.
  • Be yourself.
  • Persevere through struggles.
  • Learn from failure, and
  • Love the process.
Fifty stories and reflections to pick you up, dust you off, and set you on your way. Or take five minutes before bed to read a parable. You’ll sleep with a positive, inspirational message in your mind.

Donald Lee draws on decades as both a band director and a religion teacher to expertly craft band room vignettes that are both entertaining and illuminating. Whether you’re a Sunday pew-warmer, a hermit monk, or a high-mileage astral traveler, you’ll find something to love, cherish, and chuckle at in these fascinating stories. Pick up your copy today!
