The Nebraska Schools Activities Association published a list of COVID-19 resources here. Click on General Information. NSAA partnered with NSBA, NMEA, Nebraska Choral Directors Association (NCDA), and the Nebraska Music Teachers Association (affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association - MTNA) for this list of resources.
The Nebraska Department of Education in conjuction with the Nebraska Music Education Association, Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services, and NSBA has released the Launch Nebraska Guidance for Summer Music Activities. It details guidance for safely resuming summer marching band, lessons/small group instruction (sectionals/drumline/guard), beginning band instrument demonstration/selection, and show choir choreography camp. This living document will be updated as necessary and invaluable for planning summer music. Visit launchne.com for more information.
The NSBA Young & Future Directors Boot Camp will be held Friday, July 10, 2020 at Kearney High School, Lincoln Christian School, Westside High School, and online! Participants can choose to attend one of the three sites (Kearney, Lincoln, Omaha) or attend the entire boot camp electronically. Two sessions will be offered face-to-face at each site with the other presentations broadcast to all sites so everyone will be able to learn from our fine clinicians. Discussion time at each site and electronic discussion will follow each presentation.
While supplies last, participants will get their choice of books by Peter Boonshaft and Scott Rush. Everyone will get a link to resources from NSBA board members and veteran directors. (This replaces the USB flash drives given out in the past).
Click here to register for this FREE opportunity! You must be an NSBA member and membership is free for first-year directors.
