We consider the Iowa Bandmaster to be the finest state publication of its kind.  The Iowa Bandmaster maintains a circulation of over 1000 directors in Iowa and throughout the nation.  

The Iowa Bandmaster is published four times a year, about four weeks after the copy deadline. The Conference issue is in the hands of our members prior to our Annual Conference in May.

Cooperation between school music directors and the music industry is more important than ever today as we work to maintain quality music programs. We thank those of you who have advertised with us in the past and look forward to working with you again. We also welcome those who will be joining us for the first time. Those of you who advertise in consecutive issues within our publication year and keep your account in good standing will receive a 3-4% discount per issue off of the base rate.
