Upon the completion of Master of Music Degree Dr. Bustos spent the next two years at the University of Northern Colorado of Greeley, Colorado earning the Doctorate of Arts Degree in Wind Band Conducting and a secondary in clarinet performance, studying with conductor Dr. Kenneth Singleton and clarinetist Thomas Massey.

Following this exchange, her South American endeavors have included serving as guest lecturer and conductor at the first South American Conference of Band Conductors and Composers in November 2002 and as guest conductor of the Winter Band Festival in Tatui, Brazil in July 2003.

Most recently, she served as a conductor at the second South American Conference of Band Conductors and Composers in November, 2004 in Tatui, Brazil.

Dr. Bustos served as coordinator of the 2005 University of Wisconsin-Superior Music Department Brazil Cultural Exchange. This endeavor is the second event in an ongoing exchange that began in January 2004. This 2005 event involved over 120 students and music faculty in performances, master classes and other cultural events.

Dr. Bustos also worked on a collaborative recording project with Dr. Kenneth Singleton and the University of Northern Colorado Wind Ensemble to create a CD highlighting band music of Latin American composers released in  Fall 2006.
