Welcome to the

        Mississippi Bandmasters Association Website!

The MBA is the premiere band organization in our State and is governed by the Mississippi High School Activities Association. The goal of the Association is to provide outstanding educational and performance events and venues that encourage, recognize, and reward musical artistry and excellence. Consisting of directors at all grade levels throughout the state, the membership focuses on promoting music education through participation as well as performance.  We strongly believe that band and instrumental music education are essential components of the school curriculum.

 The Mississippi Bandmasters Association is involved in establishing guidelines for all band events, and ensuring that the guidelines are followed.  In doing so, the Association helps to sponsor many events throughout the year. The state convention is held the second weekend in December each year in Tupelo. This convention, known as “State Band Clinic” is attended by over four hundred students, three hundred band directors, as well as many exhibitors, performing ensembles, clinicians, and sponsors. The directors are also afforded opportunities for in-service growth through clinics. 

 Please feel welcome to correspond with the MBA concerning any ideas or concerns as they relate to making the bands better in our great state. It is our desire to work together to promote a lifelong love of music among students, parents, teachers, and the community as a whole.
