The Directors’ Academy at the Music for All Symposium Symposium, presented by Yamaha, brings you the absolute best to provide comprehensive professional development.

It’s a total experience, with something for every band director: high school and middle school, from the most experienced to the teacher at the start of his or her career. Music for All offers universal pedagogy and tools that will allow you to achieve peak performance personally and for your ensembles. This is the place to get a head start on next year’s thinking, make connections, get new ideas, and learn new strategies. Recharge your batteries while having a great time!

Customize your curriculum with choices focusing on a wide range of tracks and topics relevant to today’s band director in concert band, jazz, marching, and technology. Experience classroom rehearsal techniques, conducting, literature, marching band design, jazz band, pedagogy, technology, organization and administration, programming, and more. You also have access to observe all the student division classes, watching master teachers in all areas of instrumental instruction in action.

Our new series of daily Band Director Master Classes will provide time with master teachers on a wide range of issues from both inside the classroom and beyond.
