Tan-Tar-A Conference Center
The 2023 Missouri Bandmasters Association Clinic and Convention is back and happening June 18-21, at TanTarA Resorts, the Lake of the Ozarks! It is not too late to be a part of our seventh year at this outstanding location for concerts and clinics in a family atmosphere. All the facilities of the resort will be available to clinic participants, including two pools, miniature golf course, lake access, and indoor water park. Spouses, children, and significant others are welcome and encouraged to attend.
MBA President Ken Hansen is assembling an outstanding group of clinicians, including Dr. Arris Golden and Tiffany Hitz, leading a session entitled “Making Your Garden Grow: Instilling a Growth Mindset.” A clinic on Rural School programs will be led by Amy Heavilin and Aaron Burkhart. Julia Davila, renown percussion instructor will be leading a clinic on concert and marching percussion. Featured performers will include the 135th Army Band and their Brass Quintet. Reading sessions and many other great clinic offerings will be included. Band directors are ready to get back to the Lake to learn and this is the time for MBA and our profession to push forward and grow!
