Dr. Randal C. Dickerson is an Associate Professor of Music Education at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he conducts the Blugold Marching Band (BMB) and the University Band, teaches courses in Music Education, and supervises student teachers.   Since his arrival at UW-Eau Claire in 2000 the Blugold Marching Band has more than tripled in size and has taken its place alongside the other outstanding ensembles of the Department of Music & Theatre Arts.  The BMB is now one of the largest and most active collegiate marching bands in the upper Midwest.  Dickerson is an active adjudicator/clinician and a prolific arranger. 

Before coming to Eau Claire, Dr. Dickerson spent six years as Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Academic Affairs and Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Illinois. There he coordinated student and curricular affairs for the School of Music, Department of Theatre, Department of Dance, and the Art Education Division.  During his seven years as a high school band director in Mississippi and Washington, Dr. Dickerson's ensembles were consistently rated superior and amassed awards from many festivals in the U.S. and Canada.
