Sectionals with Clinicians
Starting in October, and running through April, every student in every band and orchestra has a weekly small group lesson, which we call a sectional, with a professional on their instrument. These incredible musician/teachers bring to the students a great depth of knowledge and skill particular to their instrument, and provide an invaluable extension to classroom instruction. This unique and extensive program, completely funded by the boosters, gives the detailed and specific instruction that makes possible the high level of achievement our students regularly attain. The program would not be the same without it. The professionals- members of the DSO, the Michigan Opera, doctoral students and graduates of the UofM, and other fine musicians- commit to working with our students, and the boosters commit to making this possible! We could not offer this exceptional opportunity without the many thousands of dollars raised each year.
