The music faculty of HCC is available for master classes and clinics at schools in Howard County.  If you are looking for someone to help improve your school’s ensemble, inspire your students, or help them develop a new skill, consider using our faculty as part of the HCC Music Outreach Program.

We can help your students develop better practice techniques, improve as an ensemble, prepare for auditions, learn how to improvise, improve their swing rhythms, or anything else that will help them develop their musical skills.  Follow any of the links below for more details on clinics we can provide at your school.  If you have any other requests, tell us what you need and we will do everything we can to help you and your ensemble.
