National Parent-Booster Seminars 

Matching grants from National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) and 
The Revelli Foundation have made it possible to create a series of
parent advocacy seminars presented over the next three years throughout 
the nation at select Bands of America events. 

These Music Advocacy Workshops are designed to educate parents, booster 
organizations, administrators and other interested individuals in the
importance of music education in the development of our children. 

The workshops are tuition-free. They will be conducted by Dr. Tim 
Lautzenheiser, founder of Attitude Concepts for Today and Michael Kumer,
Dean of the School of Music at Duquesne University. Parents will be 
provided with materials after the session that include: 

       The latest polls showing the healthy public opinion of the 
importance of music in our school curriculums 

       How music learning impacts advance learning in math skills, verbal 
skills, and other academics 

       Blueprints of how to garner greater involvement from your fellow 
music supporters 

       The latest scientific findings of the effect of music in terms of 
brain development 

       Sample letters to administrators, local politicians, school board 
members, etc.
