Joliet Central High School Band Director, Don Stinson, was invited to become a Conn-Selmer VIP for music education. Don Stinson is the Director of Bands at Joliet Central High School, and a proud Joliet Central alum. Conn-Selmer is the largest manufacturer of musical instruments in the country, and assists music programs with various equipment and educational resources.
By accepting this invitation, Stinson joins a flourishing network of the country’s top music educators. Conn‐Selmer will sponsor Stinson’s trip to their location in Elkhart, Indiana, where he will experience in‐depth factory tours.
Additionally, Stinson will spend the day learning about Conn‐Selmer’s educational programs and network with Senior Executives and Division of Education staff.
The Division of Education has many benefits available to music educators including the Instrument Inventory Management System, Educational Clinician Network, and annual Conn‐Selmer Institute. VIPs receive special access to these programs and services.
Conn-Selmer VIP Program Manager Rania El-Kareh said, “Our mission is to provide music for every child. ‘VIP Days’ help our company learn about the needs of current educators and in turn drive the future of our educational initiatives. Mr. Stinson is a valued member of the music education community, and we would be honored to host him as an expert in the field. Participation in this event does not obligate Joliet Township District 204 to any financial commitments or sale of any Conn‐Selmer products. This experience is a resource designed to support and grow music education programs across America while also acknowledging the important contribution that Mr. Stinson is already making in your community.”
Of the opportunity, Stinson said, “I’m very grateful to Conn-Selmer. I am looking forward to speaking with them regarding music education and how we can best continue the tradition and advance the Joliet music programs.”
