The Conn-Selmer Institute returns this year from June 8th to the 11th. Held annually in Mishawaka, Indiana, sessions focus on recruitment techniques, retention, student engagement, and motivation as well as a wide range of other topics music teachers may not have touched upon in college.
Started in 1997, the Conn-Selmer Institute has worked to promote music education. Led by Tim Lautzenheiser, the Institute features 18 premier musical minds presenting various seminars and sessions for both music teachers and music education students.
On Tuesday, June 10, there will be a special session called The Music Parents/Booster Leader Seminar. Attendees will learn about powerful and effective strategies to grow support for their local music programs. Music parents and boosters already do a lot for their children’s music groups, and this session will teach them how to optimize their hard work.
