Music Clinics and Workshops
As an alternative to formal festival competitions and adjudications, we can arrange a private music clinic for your performing groups, giving you the opportunity to work with the clinician and tailor the session to the particular needs and performance level of your students. Recent workshops have been conducted by faculty members and professional musicians affiliated with the following programs:

  • Juilliard
  • Eastman School of Music
  • Cleveland Institute of Music
  • Curtis Institute of Music
  • McGill University
  • Boston University
  • California State University at Fullerton

It is stressful enough as a band director to prepare all of the details of a high school musical ensemble's performance. Suburban Tours is the best tour company in regard to helping musical groups plan for school trips. They have years of experience, they are flexible, understanding and organized. They take the stress out of planning your trip so that all you have to worry about is rehearsing your students!
