Frank Tracz guest lecturer at national band directors conference

Submitted by Don Linn

Frank Tracz was a keynote speaker and clinician at the American School Band Directors Association conference from June 29-30 in Galena, Illinois.

The association assists school band directors, promotes concert bands in the schools, recognizes outstanding music educators and sponsors convention clinics to share ideas and teaching strategies. The association also will commission new concert band literature from the nation's leading composers and publishes curriculum and advocacy material. 

Tracz gave various talks and presentations to the association's Region II conference in Illinois during an intense two days. Hundreds of music educators were on hand to learn, share ideas and develop new strategies for teaching music in the band classroom.
