“The people at Pearl are open to new ideas and suggestions that will best serve the style and vision of your individual program. Whether you are working with your students on the Marching field and/or the Concert Hall Pearl has the product to fit your needs and enhance the quality of your sound. Thanks again Pearl for sponsoring the 2009 HBCU National Band Directors Consortium.”  Dr. Sean Daniels, Pearl Artist   "The HBCU-National Band Directors' Consortium is pleased to partner with the Pearl Drum company to continue to promote and enhance music worldwide." Dr. O'Neill Sanford
The following institutions are collaborative members of the HBCU National Band Directors' Consortium (NBDC).  Representatives from these schools come together for conferences and/or meetings to discuss such topics as the impact of music on today's youth; the types of music the students are listening to, and how to incorporate it into the curriculum, if it is education-worthy.  The conferences are not only learning experiences, but also provide a means for students to meet their "distant classmates" and perform with them in ensembles and concert bands that are formed at the conferences.
