Higher Education Fellowship

The increased presence of modern band and popular music education at the primary and secondary levels in the U.S. presents forward-looking music teacher education programs with an excellent opportunity to fully prepare their students to teach in districts with modern band programs and, more broadly, in the classrooms of tomorrow.

As a leader in the field of culturally responsive, student-centered and inclusive music education, Music Will partners with colleges and universities to help develop leadership and sustainable coursework in popular music education approaches. The Modern Band Higher Education Fellowship (MBHEF) is an opportunity for tenure-track music education professors to receive instruction in incorporating modern band pedagogies into pre-service music teacher education programs and receive hands-on instruction in playing popular music instruments.
