Who is ABODAQ

ABODA Qld is a member-operated organisation striving to improve the musical, educational and cultural excellence of instrumental music, bands and orchestras throughout schools and the wider community. We provide opportunities for music teachers and ensemble directors across the State to meet and share ideas for the advocacy of music, and professional development programs focused on improving instrumental music education and ensemble direction.

Our members are drawn from a broad spectrum of society and, although music teachers and band directors form the core our membership, support from the wider music community is essential to the success of our activities.

ABODA Qld is affiliated with ABODA National and the other state chapters.
