The Iowa Bandmasters Association have posted a wealth of resources to help you and your students continue learning while school is suspended, compiled by Dr. Michael Golemo from Iowa State, with help from past IBA president Jane Triplett and a host of Iowa music education leaders in Iowa. There is also a spreadsheet where you can offer your own suggestions and resources. They’re available in this IBA Google Folder - IBA Instructional Resources.
