2019 High School Institute Schedule

See all that’s in store at THE premier music teaching clinic for high school music students

Leadership training session with Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser

The High School Institute was created by The Midwest Clinic as a special program for students who are currently serving as the leaders of their instrumental music programs. Students who attend this one-day program have the unique opportunity to focus on leadership skills, positive character attributes and personal motivation.  Students also get to visit the exhibit hall, participate in special programming designed for them, attend a concert and a clinic of their choice.  Finally, college music education majors from several different universities supervise and participate in the programming along with the high school students.
