Music Clinics

MacPhail offers one complimentary clinic to each school within a 30 minute driving radius of any of its teaching sites. Our teaching artists will conduct a clinic at your school for either the entire ensemble or specific instrument sections, jazz band, orchestra and choir. Contact Bob Adney, school recruiter, at or 612.767.5410 to discuss the options and set up a clinic at your school. It is also possible to purchase clinics for your school beyond the complimentary clinic.


All-State Band Audition – Video Tutorials

MacPhail, in cooperation with the MMEA, has created a suite of tutorial videos using the pieces selected for the All-State Band/Orchestra/Choir/Jazz band auditions. Please feel free to share these with your students. The videos will be available this fall.


Musical Passports

The Musical Passports program is designed for you, as a band/orchestra/choir director, to give the gift of music to a student of your choice, who is not currently taking lessons at MacPhail, and who is motivated and committed to his/her music. Your student will receive a 50 percent savings on one semester of music instruction, plus a waiver of the $25 registration fee. Contact Bob Adney, school recruiter, at or 612.767.5410 for more information.
