Avenues: Exploring Band and Jazz Methods is a professional development opportunity designed to review, stimulate, and explore instrumental music education
Avenue a way of access, a channel for pursuing a desired object
The summer workshop, now in its thirteenth year, offers music educators the chance to gather, communicate, and collaborate at Brandon University. In addition to presentations and round-table discussions, the two days include active participation, conducting activities, personalized instruction, and informal gatherings.
Workshops provide opportunities to develop band and jazz rehearsal techniques, conducting skills, instrument techniques, jazz pedagogy, repertoire selection and preparation, instructional warm-ups, and improvisation. Avenues participants are asked to bring along an instrument and a conducting baton.
