About the Conference

WBAS has been organising the well-received Band Student Leaders Workshop since 2007 and has now partnered various local and USA education organisations to transform the leadership workshop into a more holistic developmental programme for youth leaders in band.

 

Through active learning and hands-on sessions, participants are expected to leave the Conference feeling inspired and equipped to become leaders and change agents in their arts communities. The Conference will touch on the three interlocking realms of the music student leader; the self, the music group and the community.
