We're in the Schools!

School of Music faculty and students are frequently engaging in K12 music programs, delivering master classes and clinics for music students throughout the state, and we're looking forward to many more collaborations this upcoming year. Beginning this Fall, Professor Tom Ashworth will be giving low-brass and jazz band clinics for area high school bands, and come Spring these visits will include his student group, the University of Minnesota Trombone Choir. To bring one of these clinics and concerts to your high school, contact mnmusic@umn.edu. Professor Ashworth will emphasize the many opportunities students will have as both music majors and non-music majors at large public university.

Here are just a couple of the highlights of faculty engagement with the schools from 2010-2011:

  • Associate Director of Bands, Jerry Luckhardt and the University Wind, Symphonic, and Campus Bands rehearsed, dined, and performed alongside the Hastings High School Band. Thank you, Band and Band Boosters, for the great hospitality!
  • Dr. Laura Sindberg's Music Ed students helped 5th and 6th graders pick out their band and orchestra instruments at the Wayzata Public Schools Instrument Recruitment Night.
