Jazz at Lincoln Center's
Band Director Academy

June 27-30, 2019

Jazz at Lincoln Center, New York, NY

Band Director Academy (BDA) is a multi-day professional development workshop for band directors. Led by a team of prominent jazz educators, we focus on the essentials of teaching jazz, emphasizing hands-on learning and practical techniques.

Faculty includes: Director of Jazz Studies at Michigan State University, Rodney Whitaker, Professor of Jazz Saxophone and former member of the Count Basie Band, Brad Leali, and former lead trumpet and soloist of the Count Basie Band, Byron Stripling.

This four-day session will focus on the importance and impact of the most fundamental artist of our time, the great Count Basie! Change your classroom teaching by studying the Basie approach to ensemble, composition, and improvisation, and a survey of the hundreds of available pieces! By utilizing listening, demonstration, discussion and then practical application, attendees will gain an insight into how to transfer these specific techniques to their band room.

Our literature based, hands on approach is informed by the aesthetic choices made by the greatest composers, arrangers and practitioners of Americas music; jazz. So, whether you are fresh out of school, or teaching a fully-fledged program, Band Director Academy is right for you.

Discounts, travel stipends, and scholarships are available!
