Clinics & Masterclasses
Would you like to have NJSO musicians provide supplemental instruction and coaching to your students or music educators? NJSO musicians—many of them seasoned educators—welcome the chance to collaborate with music educators and provide students with supplemental coaching and mentoring. Offerings are customized for beginner to advanced players of all ages.
Clinics & Masterclasses are provided through the Orchestra’s REACH (Resources for Education And Community Harmony) program. For more information and to schedule master classes or clinics for your students, please contact Terri Campbell at [email protected] or 973.735.1717.
“[The musician’s] calm and reassuring tone is helpful to making the kids feel comfortable trying something new. The air flow exercises are great and the whole trumpet section sounds better!”
