2012 IMEA High School Audition Master Classes



VanderCook is located at 3140 S. Federal Street on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology.  A PDF map with directions can be found here.


Guests may park on the gravel to the north and west (behind) of the VanderCook building.  A sheet to put on your dash will be available in the VanderCook lobby.

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 IMEA Auditions, VanderCook applied faculty offered master classes on September 20th and 26th.  Please check back in May for dates for 2013 sessions.
