Conn-Selmer's Division of Education is committed to creating partnerships with the music education community to advance the positive growth and development of first-class school music programs.
From sharing the latest arts advocacy information to working hand-in-hand with teacher development offerings, the VIP initiative serves as a source-of-support for music educators around the world.
John Stoner, President/CEO of Conn-Selmer, Inc., commented, "We have truly enjoyed having these exemplary educators with us. Initially we thought it was our goal to avail the teachers to the importance of developing a mutual bridge-of-communication, but we are quickly discovering *we* are the ones learning more from our guests than we could ever measure. We look forward to inviting many more new people to our Conn-Selmer home."
According to Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser, Vice President of Education, "Conn-Selmer's VIP program is unique, exciting, awakening, enlightening and a great experience for everyone involved. It is a ONE OF A KIND program that brightly shines the spotlight-of-recognition directly on the visiting guests. We consider this to be a privilege and an honor to extend a red carpet invitation to those dedicated music educators who are committed to "program excellence." The synergistic opportunities of creating a working-growing-powerful partnership with music-in-our schools is the ultimate win-win, particularly when it is guided by the mission-oriented passion of every master teacher. Most importantly, we are certain the real benefactors are the young musicians in the rehearsal rooms today who are destined to be "the leaders of tomorrow."'
