Conn Selmer Institute

June 11-14, 2023

Conn Selmer Institute (CSI) is a three and a half day professional development conference for college students, directors, and music program leaders. Our world-class faculty leads a curriculum with specialized tracks focusing on college students, new music educators, middle school directors, high school directors including marching arts, and music administrators. We love the traditions and personal connections made in-person at Bethel University, and are thrilled with the success of the virtual option to attend as well - the best of both worlds!

It's a one-of-a-kind, immersive event

Whether you join us in person or online, Conn Selmer Institute connects you personally with peers and faculty and equips you with practical skills and relevant strategies that address current trends in music education .

Joining us in-Person?

CSI is located on the beautiful campus of Bethel University in Mishawaka, Indiana. Experience being live in the classroom with our amazing faculty, go on factory tours, enjoy live concerts, and all meals are included!

Join Us Online!

All sessions are live-streamed and available for replay after the event. Whether you attend virtually, or in person, our faculty directly connects with all attendees giving everyone the same world-class curriculum! This is not just another Zoom!
