The Australian Band and Orchestra Director’s Association (ABODA) is Australia’s premier in-service support organisation for music educators, instrumental music teachers and band & orchestra directors.
ABODA pledges an ongoing commitment to the growth of music education and community music making throughout all areas of the country. ABODA is the only in-service organisation in Australia specifically for ensemble directors and communicates with other professional development organisations both locally and internationally.
Anyone with an interest in ensemble music making, whether professional, amateur, school or community based, is welcome to join ABODA. Students with an interest in improving their level and understanding of music making and Ensemble Direction and Conducting are encouraged to join. You do not have to be an ensemble director to join ABODA.
