2017 System Blue Educational Events

System Blue engages band directors, teachers, staff, designers, performers, and marching members to promote musical excellence all over the world.

MARCHING ARTS

Our education programs provide opportunities for students, educators, and fans alike to hone their performance, leadership, and teaching skills under the instruction of the finest educators in the marching arts. From intense multi-day skills camps to instrument-specific clinics and master classes, participants are able to study in a focused and enriching environment that includes performing alongside the members of today’s top drum corps.

CONCERT BAND

System Blue now offers professional development workshops on fundamental woodwind, brass, and concert percussion pedagogy; concert band rehearsal techniques; establishing a private lesson program; recruitment and retention; as well as student leadership mentorship for marching and concert band. Concert band workshops presented by System Blue include three professional development sessions, two modules applicable to concert band, and one module applicable to band, orchestra, and choir. The workshops detail assessment and ensemble technique, as well as a comprehensive presentation on developing intonation awareness in young musicians.

Contact Frank Troyka, System Blue Director of Education, for more information about scheduling a concert band workshop.
