Online School PartnershipsOnline School Partnerships are customized to support your music goals and supply resources to your established music programs by beaming renowned MacPhail faculty into your classroom!

Through live video-conferencing, you and your students will work with renowned MacPhail specialists on a variety of offerings ranging from clinics and sectionals to concert prep, professional development and individual lessons.

How it Works

We use simple video conferencing tools that many schools already have. Don’t worry if this is all new to you; no technology experience is needed.  Our supportive staff can guide you through your equipment set-up.

Connect with MacPhail using:

  • A video endpoint system (e.g. Cisco/Tandberg, Polycom, ITV, etc.)
  • OR A computer.  All you need is:
    • A web-camera and a microphone  built-in or attachable. Click for recommendations.
    • A reliable Internet connection: You can check your connection by clicking here and selecting “Begin Test.”  For a good connection, minimum download and upload speeds of 2.0 Mbps are recommended.

This program is partially funded with a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education using state funds.
