Jazz at Lincoln Center
Funded in March, 2006: $50000 for 2 years
The Dana grant will provide funding for the Band Director Academy (BDA) during the 2006– 2007 and 2007–2008 seasons. Developed by JALC in 1999, the BDA teaches band directors of all academic levels as well as undergraduate and graduate students to better conduct and teach the music of jazz. BDA is held annually during the summer over two, two-and-a half day sessions at JALC and in one other American city, bringing together band directors from throughout the United States.
