The North American Band Survey: Results Released

The North American Band Survey was launched on September 9, 2020 as a joint initiative between the American Bandmasters Association (ABA), the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA), the National Band Association (NBA), and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). The purpose of the survey was to collect information about curricular and programming models that are being used in band programs in the 2020-2021 school year with the goal of creating a large repository of curricular and programming ideas to share with any and all interested directors. The survey was sent to the members of each of the professional organizations as well as posted in public forums. The survey remained open until October 9 and was completed by 2,272 persons.
