American School Band Directors Association

  • Promoting excellence in K-12 school band programs.

  • Recognizing excellence in teaching.

  • Providing educational research for the 21st century music classroom.

ASBDA supports an initiative known as the North American Band Survey which should help all band directors figure out how to better navigate our new Covid-driven teaching and performing scenarios. This link will take you to the survey.

The goal of the survey is to collect information about curricular and programming models that are being used in band programs this fall. This is a joint initiative between the American Bandmasters Association, the CBDNA - College Band Directors National Association, the National Band Association, and the National Federation of State High School Associations and is also supported by the composers of the Creative Repertoire Initiative. This endeavor will create a large repository of ideas for all aspects of school, college/university and community band programs, and the results will be shared with any and all interested directors. They would be grateful if you would take a moment of your time (approximately five minutes) to complete the short survey.
