SavingsAhead WEb Version
My entire tenure with Music for All (2014 marks my 30th anniversary as MFA/BOA staff, yikes!) we have always weighed the cost of our presenting programs and the cost to the participants. While always a great value, we’ve continued to look for ways to make the Summer Symposium for band directors accessible to more. This year, after much consideration we’ve made the commitment to roll back Directors’ Academy fees so that directors now enroll for the same price as students!

Mark January 31 on your calendar: that’s the Super Saver deadline to enroll in the Summer Symposium (for directors and students). Directors – enroll by January 31 and you can attend this week-long professional development experience for as little as $102 a day – that’s tuition, meals, housing, materials and all of the evening concerts, events and socials.

How can we do this? Our new pricing model results from our organizational programming successes and growth in support from sponsors and donors. We’re passing these successes on to you by making attendance for you and your staff more accessible. Help us “pay it forward” by choosing to attend. Join us this summer and expand your knowledge base, build new relationships and collaborations, and learn and explore the latest in pedagogy, techniques and technology – all in an environment that fun and sure to recharge or reignite your passion for teaching.

The Music for All Summer Symposium Director’s and Instructor’s Tracks are recognized as some of the finest and most comprehensive professional development experiences available.

There are other ways to save, too…and even attend free! Bring 12 students from your school and earn a scholarship for one Director to attend camp for free. Bring six to 11 students and earn a scholarship for one Director to attend camp tuition free.
Deep discount for college students and teachers in their first three years of teaching: Research shows that three years is about the career life of most teachers. At Music for All we know that the most influential element in the success of students and music education in general are qualified, knowledgeable and well-prepared teachers. College students and teachers in their first three years of teaching can attend the Directors’ Academy for just $350! Includes tuition; housing and meals; concerts; and notebook of resources. That’s more than 30% off the regular price! Qualified participants can get that price by registering at any time before May 21.

That’s a lot of information and many words to basically say: “We want you to join us for the MFA Directors’ Academy and we’ve reduced prices to help you get there.”

Please join us, and if you do – be sure to come to headquarters and say hi, I’d love to hear about your camp experience!
