Welcome to the MSBOA Website!
The Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association has been serving the schools of Michigan since 1934.
For 88 years MSBOA has provided numerous student oriented activities such as festivals, workshops and teacher in-service functions at both the district and state levels.
The Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to improving instrumental music in the State of Michigan.
MSBOA is organized in regional-district associations in both peninsulas, serving over 1,500 public, parochial and private schools. MSBOA consists of more than 1,600 instrumental music teachers certified by the State of Michigan to teach music education in our schools.
MSBOA is controlled at the State level by an Executive Board and the Presidents of our 16 geographical Districts. Three times a school year, this body meets to determine and discuss various topics that lead the Association, in such a way, as to ensure the continuing growth of MSBOA and instrumental music.
As Executive Director it is my pleasure and honor to serve the membership of MSBOA.
Please visit the many areas of our website and become informed as to the activities of MSBOA.
