What to bring?

Students should bring their music, instruments and sticks as well as all needed accessories.  VanderCook will allow use of large percussion but will not have instruments or extra accessories on hand for student use.


During the master classes faculty will perform the audition requirements.  If students would like to have a recording of that as a resource (and provided the faculty member gives permission) they should bring something with which to record.

In preparation for fall high school ILMEA Auditions, VanderCook applied faculty will be offering master classes.  A registration fee of $5/student is due on or before the RSVP deadlines detailed below.

Master classes for select instruments will be offered on Thursday, September 19th and Wednesday, September 25th.
