Keep your regular teaching job!
Participate in classes, located in beautiful Ashland, Oregon during a couple of weeks each summer, and complete major projects during the school year with your own students. Study online, network online, and still take advantage of the one-on-one and group performance experiences only offered on location.
We utilize the gifts and talents of more than 60 world-class faculty from all over the world in order to present clinics, give one-on-one conducting instruction, rehearse and perform in bands of which you participate. Imagine working under the baton of Frank Ticheli, Robert W. Smith, or Johan de Meij one summer, and returning the next for David Holsinger, Alfred Watkins, Paula Crider, or a number of others the next.
