Optional Clinic

All bands have the option of adding on a 30-minute clinic for an additional $50 after the prelims performance.   Immediately following your performance. 


You may select ONE of two options.

         A.  Full Band and Staff Clinic  [the band will be inside in a band room or gym]

For the full band clinic, the clinician will view the video with your band and will talk with the full group about areas that went well and areas that need improvement.   It will be a positive experience and will reinforce any area you want reinforced.


       B.  Directors only clinic  [conference room area] 

For the Directors only clinic, feel free to bring any questions, drill, music arrangements, etc. to discuss.   We encourage you to bring your own lap tap with a performance.   If you have specific area of more interest [music/visual] please let us know.


Note:  The clinicians will not be providing any scores for any bands.   They will provide a general commentary only.
