For the first-year teacher to the seasoned pro, this workshop has been designed to enhance the positive experiences of dealing with the concert band, marching band and jazz band.

"In 12 years of teaching, I never have attended a conference with the mixture of education, good fellowship and just plain fun than The Complete Band Director Workshop! Being from out of state, I have gained new insight into many facets of the 'music education experience.' If you miss this, you really have missed a great experience! Sometimes band directors feel like they're alone in the world. This workshop makes you feel like a member of the family." -- Lee Ann Lykens, Liberty (Raleigh) High School, Glen Daniel, W. Va.
"The complete workshop!! Tremendous clinicians, great handouts and all areas covered. This workshop renewed my beliefs in striving for a balanced program and for putting our students, and the experiences we can present, at the focal point of our teaching." -- Elmer Broecker, West Jefferson High School, West Jefferson, Ohio.
