Clinics at VanderCook

VanderCook began offering rehearsal clinics to middle and high school groups as a way to provide our current students exposure to different types and levels of school music groups.  Due to the economical price, quality of experience, and convenient location, the program has grown significantly, now bringing in many ensembles to the College each year.  Clinics at VanderCook are booked in two-hour blocks with the actual clinician contact time being 75 minutes.  Our ensemble directors specialize in working with bands, choirs, jazz ensembles, guitar ensembles, and string orchestras.

Our goal is to meet the educational and musical needs of visiting students and ensembles at a reasonable price.  To book a clinic for your ensemble, contact our Clinics Coordinator:

Every Gift Matters…

Gifts to VanderCook come in many forms and sizes and each one truly makes a difference. You may wonder how a small contribution can matter to the college – how it can “make a dent.” Combined with other donor gifts, even a relatively minor contribution can make a major impact.

Thank you for your generosity and support!
