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.
VanderCook applied faculty offer free master classes to help students prepare for fall high school ILMEA Auditions.

Fall 2019 master class dates and RSVP deadlines will be announced in August 2019. 

Please check back for 2019 master class dates & RSVP deadlines

Please contact the Admissions Office to register individual students.  Directors are asked to complete the RSVP form on Eventbrite to register their school for this amazing experience!
