A SWMEA Educational Event
Marching Arts Experience
Sept 21, 2019
Since the inception of the Southwest Music Education Association (SWMEA), it has been our mission to give back to the music community. In 2017, we began producing the Marching Arts Experience which provides a unique educational experience for students, parents, instructors, and directors .
There are three sections of the event:
SWMEA: The Sessions
Featuring renowned educators and performers from across the U.S. these FREE sessions will provide world class instruction for students, instructors, parents and band directors. For the complete Schedule of sessions visit The Sessions Tab
CSBC On Field Clinics
A truly unique educational experience for instructors and students, The California State Band Championships will feature multiple panels of clinicians to provide Live On-Field Clinics for the entire marching ensemble. This is a great opportunity for bands to receive real time feedback on how to improve their Visual, Music, Percussion and Auxiliary performance from our professional team of clinicians.
Your first opportunity to see these bands take the field as we kick off the CSBC Fall Marching Season. Ensembles will perform their show in exhibition for a full panel of judges who will provide commentary for the staff and students to review following the show. This show is open to the public and all performers from throughout the day there is a $5 entry fee for non-performers.
A Schedule of performances will be available by visiting www.calstatebandchamps.org
