As music educators, band directors, administrators and parents plan for an eventual return to school, unsure of what music classes and rehearsal spaces will look like, USBands wanted to share some resources we think will be helpful as you prepare for the summer and fall.
While at this time it appears as if music education will return on a state by state, if not a district by district basis, we hope these resources will provide some guidance in preparing your music program for the eventual return to music making.
We will be updating these resources as we receive them from the leading advocates for musc education in the nation.
