Music for All’s efforts to create, provide, and expand positively life-changing experiences include awarding a number of scholarships each year.
Percussion Specialists at the Bands of America Summer Symposium will benefit from our world class curriculum for Total Program Success. Percussion educators, high school and middle school band directors, and color guard instructors will together learn systems and processes revolving around these core competencies:
· Evaluation – Where are you (and your program) now?
· Visualization – Celebrating strengths and acknowledging areas for growth
· Organization – Plan and organize a path to success
· Communication – Maximize your relationships with students, parents, and co-workers
Percussion specific breakout sessions will extend to topics such as:
· Sound Design
· Marching Technique
These sessions will be led by Tony Lymon, Director and Designer of Pedal Indoor Percussion, and Jon Weber, Instructor of Percussion at the Michigan State University College of Music.
