The Arts Education Institute (AEI) offers an educational and fun- filled week of learning to infuse the arts into classrooms and curriculum development. This year ONLINE art, choral & theatre workshops offer opportunities for all Pre-K through 12th grade educators. You DO NOT need to be an educator to attend AEI, we encourage everyone to attend.

The Band Director Institute (BDI) is an intensive program designed to expose music teachers to the best in current and standard literature in addition to teaching methods and materials. The ONLINE institute will include new band literature sessions, master classes and clinic sessions that focus on a wide variety of teaching subjects for band directors.

The headline clinician will be Kevin Day. Kevin Day is a composer, conductor, producer, and multi-instrumentalist on tuba, euphonium, jazz piano and more, whose music often intersects between the worlds of jazz, minimalism, Latin music, fusion, and contemporary classical idioms. Day currently serves as the Composer-In-Residence of the Mesquite Symphony Orchestra.

The Choral Director Institute (CDI) is an extensive and focused program designed to introduce choral music educators to the best in current and standard literature in addition to teaching methods and materials. The ONLINE institute will include new choral literature sessions, master classes and clinic sessions that focus on a wide variety of teaching subjects for choir directors.
