The Department of Music often receives requests from outside high school and community college groups requesting clinics or classes for their students.

When possible the department tries to accommodate these requests, although it is not always possible if the requested group conductor or TA is not available, or if a suitable room is not available on the date requested.

Large ensemble clinic requests may be submitted for orchestra, band, wind ensemble, and chorale. There is a $100/day facilities fee for use of our room for California schools. There is a fee of $600 (which includes the $100/day facilities fee) for schools from outside California. In addition, there is a waiver of liability and an image waiver that must be completed and signed by each student and/or their parent or guardian if they are less than 18 years old.

If you are interested in bringing your group to UCLA for a clinic, please send your request to Alix Von Bosen at . She will discuss your request with the respective director or directors and respond to you with more information. Please be sure to include in your request the name and contact information of your group’s director, the type of clinic you wish to hold, and the specific day you wish to visit campus. Please be aware that there is no parking for buses on campus.
