The Band Director Institute (BDI) offers professional development for all music teachers Pre-K through 12th grade.
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.
BDI is offered for up to three graduate or recertification (CEU) credits.
