Submitted by Don Linn

Frank Tracz, director of bands and professor of music, completed an annual residency as guest lecturer at the Conn-Selmer Institute from June 8-11 at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana.

Established in 1997, the Conn-Selmer Institute is an event focused on instructing and guiding current and future instrumental educators and music professionals. Tracz was among the instructing faculty and lecturers who represent a national gathering of the top leaders in music education. Sessions at the institute focus on teaching methods, recruitment techniques, retention, student engagement and motivation.

Tracz was on hand to work with leaders in the music profession to address the needs of educators and the challenges that people face every day in the classroom and rehearsal hall. This was Tracz’s fifth year as a faculty member and instructor at the institute.
