Team USSBA Welcomes Back Steve Frederick

Former consultant has educator background

The US Scholastic Band Association could not be happier to welcome Steve Frederick back to the team in the role of band director liaison.


Previously a band director for over 20 years in the greater Philadelphia area and then a school administrator for more than 10 years, Frederick is well acquainted with the issues that arise for bands and their staff on a daily basis. He also has significant experience as a clinician, judge and USSBA consultant and is well equipped to offer a greater level of support and guidance, expanding the breadth of service that the USSBA is able to provide for bands.

Returning from a two-year leave of absence, Frederick is excited to get back in the game and anticipates beginning work immediately, reaching out to band directors throughout the Northeast as soon as possible. If you’re just as excited as he is and wish to initiate a dialog, you can contact him by writing to or by calling him at 610-821-0345, ext. 138.

Frederick is a graduate of West Chester University, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education, and Villanova University, where he earned his Masters degree in Secondary School Administration. He taught music in the Colonial and Central Bucks School Districts before becoming director of bands at North Penn High School. He retired in 2003 after 35 years as a music educator and administrator, concluding as principal of North Penn High School.

Frederick has served as a clinician, guest conductor and judge for marching, concert and jazz band events throughout the country. He is a co-founder and director of the Montgomery County Concert Band, and previously served as executive consultant to the US Scholastic Band Association. Through the years he has supervised student teachers for West Chester University; served on the board of governors for the former Gibbs School; hosted programs for WNPV radio in Lansdale; and been active in a variety of community and professional organizations.
