Bring Rob out to your band to take your show to the next level. Rob will lead a full ensemble rehearsal, motivating your students to new levels of performance execution and rehearsal etiquette, while maintaining a fun and educational environment. Live clinic availability is limited and booked by the summer, so be sure to contact Rob early to inquire about availability.
Experience working with Rob anytime throughout the season with a virtual clinic. Post a Hi-Res video of your show from a good vantage point, and Rob will dissect your performance from an overall music perspective. With a virtual clinic, you will receive:
- A "judge's tape" audio file to play for your students.
- Extensive and detailed notes for your staff.
- An enthusiastic video of Rob addressing your band about their performance, and specific instructions on how to continue improving.
- If your schedule allows, instead of a recorded video, Rob will do a live videochat with your band.
