Our Vision.

Continuing excellence through music education. 


The vision of the HBCU-National Band Directors’ Consortium is to facilitate a pedagogical approach of the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits necessary for success in music education, performance, theory and research on all levels. This enlightened experience will touch on all learning domains including the psychomotor domain, the cognitive domain, and affective domain. We will empower students, young and old, to experience music as a source of personal enrichment, as a vehicle for the constructive expression of human emotions, and as a unique intellectual discipline.  Bennett Reimer said, “Whenever and wherever humans have existed music has existed also.” As we exist, so shall the advocacy and enhancement of music at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and our surrounding preschools, primary schools, and secondary schools.
