Teachers’ Professional Development Program


The Teachers’ Professional Development Program  offers the opportunity for local music teachers to shadow an adjudicator for a day and be totally immersed in music education. If selected to take part in the program participants will get the opportunity to:


  • Observe performances from various school and community ensembles throughout the day

  • Attend clinics with your assigned mentor and observe him/her  working with specific groups

  • Engage in rich discussion with the assigned adjudicator

  • Gain valuable knowledge regarding festival etiquette and operations

  • Choose from sessions relating to either Concert Band or Jazz Band

2018 will be our third year in which we offer educators the opportunity to observe and work with masters in their field, as well hear outstanding junior and senior high school ensembles in performances and clinics. Teachers wanting to take part in this program during the school day must first consult with their Principal regarding obtaining a release day to attend this professional development opportunity.


The dates of next year’s festival are:

Concert Band Weekend: February 21nd-25th 2018

Jazz Band Weekend: March 2nd and 3rd 2018
