OurAmbassador Program is our official commitment to outreach, and we hope to be able to offer it to your school.
The Ambassador Program is a way of bringing our faculty members to your school at no cost to you, to supplement your curriculum in a way that is constructive for your classroom. To provide you with the best possible match, we would discuss and plan which instrument(s), educators, and which presentation approach (i.e. master class, sectional, demonstration, performance, question & answer session) would be most valuable to your students.
For ideas, please reference some of our past programming:
