Clinics at VanderCook

If you would like to schedule a special clinic for your students or group, VanderCook offers a number of options for visiting ensembles of all ages and ability levels. Visiting ensembles spend up to 90 minutes with one of our experienced faculty members. Clinics are available for bands, choirs, orchestras, jazz ensembles and other groups.

Booking a Clinic

  • Groups and agents should contact the clinician(s) they are interested in working with to secure availability. Upon confirmation of the clinician(s), schedule and room availability will be confirmed.

  • Once a date/time is agreed upon, the group or agent will be emailed an invoice that includes instructions for making a (non-refundable) deposit.

  • Deposits include the room rental fee. A cash-only student set-up and assistance fee is due on the date of the clinic.

  • The signed contract and deposit must be received within 30 days after booking, or the date and time will be released for re-booking by other groups.

  • Groups/agents are responsible for completing the Clinic Request and Set-Up Chart forms and sending them to Alexis Coates via email or fax (312.225.5211). Equipment requests must be submitted at least 30 days before the scheduled clinic.

  • Clinician rates are detailed on the contracts. Groups/agents must provide a check made out directly to the clinician for the amount noted.
