WBAS Youth Arts Leaders Conference 2020

September 02, 2020

Popular amongst students and teachers since its inception in 2007, WBAS has continuously drawn together the best thinkers and mentors from local and American education organisations to bring our students the best lessons and practices of leadership and performance in music groups. This programme is thoughtfully crafted and improved on each year of its running to allow youth leaders in our band and music community to develop holistically and be the best leaders they can be. 


Due to the challenges posed by Covid-19, YALC will be subsumed under the Youth Arts Connect! programme. In this programme, students will learn leadership concepts and skills, connect with professional arts leaders in Singapore and around the world and track their own leadership development online. 


This programme consists of two main parts:

  1. Online course: Asynchronous online learning comprising course modules, resources, quizzes, progress reports and analytics pertaining to arts and leadership. Online course will be available from August through October 2020.

  2. Conference: 3-day live webcast comprising of lectures, panel discussion and breakout discussions on 3 to 5 September

Combining a conducive learning environment with our favourite activity of all time--music-making--the annual Youth Band Festival is here to round off your year with a bang!

At the end of the week, the finale concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall is sure to be a unique experience. Wait no more and mark out the dates in your calendar! Do keep a lookout for the tips and tricks that our in-house tutors will be sharing with you to kick-start this final lap of learning and music-making for the year.
