What We Do
The information I learned from the Strategic Booster Course was extremely helpful. I am a career music education believer starting as a band member, instructor, parent, college faculty member, music therapist and now my son is on his way to a career in music education. The value of creative, thorough, strategic education for every involved booster parent will not only grow a program but build a base of support that will become the norm within the community! I highly recommend every booster parent invest the time to join the Strategic Booster Academy which will equip you and your programs for success!

“In 2008, I began attending the Music for All Summer Symposium and, by doing so, expanded the scope of my professional development to a more national level. David Vandewalker and others in his strata provided me with top-level pedagogical information, but more than that, a pathway to becoming a better music educator. With warmth and care, David laid out a plan that allowed me to better serve my students and community at Franklin High School in the Williamson County (Tennessee) School District.”
