About

We are excited to present Be Part of the Band: Elementary Style, a menu of high quality tools to help band directors attract as many students as possible to their program. Student recruitment is one of the most critical, yet often overlooked, parts of a band director's job. With limited time and dwindling resources, it's getting harder to effectively and efficiently communicate to students and parents what we already know: Band Is A Life Changing Activity!

All of our videos and documents are available on this website, but you can also request a physical DVD/CD-ROM set. These resources are free, but there is a $10 charge for shipping/handling for a physical copy.

Donate today and help us get 350,000 students to start band next year! With each donation, we are able to add resources and put these materials into more and more hands.

Arts Education aids students in skills needed in the workplace: flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate, the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative, and to strive for excellence.

It is in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough - it's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the results that make our hearts sing.

Music is an essential part of everything we do. Like puppetry, music has an abstract quality which speaks to a worldwide audience in a wonderful way that nourishes the soul.
