Music educators with student big bands, concert bands, and orchestras of all ages are encouraged to visit Seattle JazzED for a clinic OR schedule a clinic at your Seattle-region school. 

  • Clinics will be with Kelly Clingan, Seattle JazzED Director of Education
  • Clinics are typically one hour (or one class period) in length. 
  • Students and teachers will come away with practical tools to make the ensemble sound better. 

Fill out the form below to make your request, and note that we will customize your clinic to accommodate your group’s needs and schedule.

Thank you for being our guest director and guiding us through our music at the Reno Honor Jazz Band. You were super fun and brought a lot of light into the room. I had an awesome time playing with you.
