Bringing CSI to You!

2024 Regional Events

Under the leadership of Tim Lautzenheiser, Conn Selmer Institute (CSI) began 26 years ago as a professional development conference for future and current music educators. It has now grown to five regional events across the US with the same purpose - to connect current music educators, college students, and fine arts administrators with world-class professional development and support.

The Conn Selmer Education administrators, faculty and staff, lead with a servant heart and provide a full experience of learning, collaboration, and inspiration.

“CSI was an Unforgettable Experience! My personal experience throughout the workshop was nothing short of excellent. The overall atmosphere was conducive to learning and networking, and I came away with valuable insights and connections. I'm excited to say that I'll definitely be recommending this CSI event to fellow musicians and individuals interested in exploring various artistic backgrounds. It's a fantastic platform that brings together diverse talents and perspectives.”
