Music is life-changing: Our Partnership with Music for All

Nov 29, 2022

Here at Bob Rogers, student travel is our passion, but music is our heartbeat. Our team is packed with veteran musicians, performers and music educators, each one with a unique story to share about how music has forever impacted their lives.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Music for All as an official partner of both the organization and its Affiliate Regional Music Festivals.

Inspired by music, aligned by mission

Music for All’s mission is to create, provide, and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all. Our own BRT mission and values dovetail perfectly with the vision Music for All has for student musicians, and we’re thrilled to support their important work. Here’s a bit of Music for All background:

Music for All has served more than 1.75 million music students through its Bands of America and Music for All programs. It serves more than 600,000 music students, their families, music teachers, and fans each year. Music programs know Music for All through its programs and events including the Music for All National Festival, the Music for All Summer Symposium camp for students and teachers, and the Bands of America Grand National and Regional Marching Band Championships held across the United States each fall.

Empowered music education

For over forty years, we’ve worked with music educators to bring their performance travel dreams to life, in part because we know how impactful music education on tour can be for students. Our partnership with Music for All’s Regional Affiliate Music Festivals allows us to support music education in a whole new way.

These Affiliate Regional Music Festivals are non-competitive, educationally focused events intended to improve the musicality and artistry of each ensemble that participates. Each festival is staffed with nationally-recognized evaluators and clinicians chosen from the panel of the Music for All National Festival or Grand National Championships, representing
the highest-caliber feedback and experience in the United States.

With over 25 regional festivals planned for 2023, there’s sure to be an event in a destination near you. To find your festival and learn more about our partnership with Music for All, visit
