Welcome to our newest chapter — Kappa Zeta (Arizona)
President Keith Bearden and event board member Keith Rudolph installed KZ on Saturday, February 4, 2017 during the Arizona Music Educators Association conference in Mesa, Arizona. Twenty-five members were pinned and presented membership certificates.
The tireless efforts of Mr. Raymond Laffin, past president of (Gamma-Indiana, now residing in Arizona) alongside brother Rudolph made this dream a reality.

Chapter Special Projects
It is exciting to see the themes of mentorship, collaboration and leadership demonstrated by the actions of Phi Beta Mu members and chapters. The ideals of our fraternity are reflected in the special projects that local chapters focus their time and energy on each year. We are thrilled by the response we had from you in 2015!
Discover the common threads of service to our profession that bind our chapters and fraternity together.
Future Commission Projects
In keeping with the Phi Beta Mu mission of building better bands, it is the intent of our executive board that we to continue to contribute to the repertoire of the wind band through commissions of new music at all grade levels. To that end, we are developing proposals for our 2016 commission of a Grade Five work for wind band.
More information about the process and opportunities for Phi Beta Mu chapters to be involved will be forthcoming.
We want to know more about you!
Public relations chair Keith Rudolph is soliciting information in order to expand our awareness of each of our 35 chapters. Even though we have much in common, each of our Phi Beta Mu chapters is unique. By sharing this information we become more connected as a fraternity and the bonds of life, love and music are strengthened.
