High School MPA Clinic Information

MPA Clinic Information –

Last year, for the first time in North Carolina, a clinic session was  offered in conjunction with the traditional MPA format. It was a successful pilot year, so clinics will be offered on two days (19th and 20th) of the festival this year rather than just one. If you are in the western part of our district but would like to participate in the clinic you may attend the festival in the east.

Bands participating in this option will perform and be assessed the same as non-participating bands. A clinician will be observing the group in addition to the adjudicators. The purpose of the clinician is not to judge or assign a rating, but rather observe areas of weakness in order to conduct a 30 minute session with the group following their performance and sight-reading. Clinicians will not rehearse the music that groups just performed, but rather help directors and students develop rehearsal techniques specific to areas of weakness observed in the performance. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your students to receive immediate, practical feedback and have MPA serve as a jumping off point for your continued growth in the future.

Bands choosing not to participate in the clinic may request to attend any day of the event, but priority is given to clinic participants for the 19th and 20th.
