Don’t let the title “Modern Band” fool you! These trainings will inform a quality pedagogical process that is purposeful for all elementary, secondary, collegiate and pre-service music educators. The techniques learned can support the development of a rock band curriculum in your school or can be adapted for use in choral, instrumental or general music settings.

PDE will offer 7 Act 48 hours for Level 1 training and 5 hours Act 48 hours for Level 2. Schools have permissible use of Title I, II or IV money to subsidize substitute pay and, if part of your district’s contractual agreements, travel reimbursement.
