Update from IBA - Instructional Resources during School Closure
March 19, 2020

Dear Members of the IBA,

The IBA’s commitment to mission remains paramount at this challenging time. To help support you during this extended time away from your students, Dr. Michael Golemo from Iowa State University, with the help of IBA Immediate Past President Jane Triplett and a whole host of music education leaders in Iowa, has started to compile an array of resources to help your students continue remotely learning. These resources can be found in this IBA Google Folder - IBA Instructional Resources.

This folder currently includes a spreadsheet listing instructional ideas and resources, pdfs from Wisconsin and Minnesota MEA's, as well as guidance from the Iowa Department of Education via Angela Matsuoka, DE Fine Arts Consultant.

Alan Greiner has also forwarded information regarding new Copyright Guidance from the NFHS that is centered around e-learning. 


Let's continue to help and support each other during this challenging time.

Jayson Gerth
President, Iowa Bandmasters Association, Inc.
