About the Annual Modern Band Summit

The Modern Band Summit is a professional development conference like no other. For three days, music educators from all over the country come together to learn, teach, play music, and experience the modern band curriculum. Comprising hundreds of teachers, district and state arts administrators, university professors, artists, advocacy groups, instrument manufacturers, and other experts, it is a congregation of those passionate about the rising tide of culturally-responsive music education. Whether you’re a new teacher or a seasoned educator, the Modern Band Summit is the only conference you need to achieve your professional development goals! You will leave with hands-on experience, new tools, and innovative techniques to transform your classroom and impact even more students.
