Clarinet Academy of America, now in its 9th season, is a collaboration between professors Robert DiLutis  of the University of Maryland and D. Ray McClellan of the University of Georgia.   The 5 days of master classes are hosted annually by both university campuses on a rotating basis. This year, the summer of 2019, the Academy will meet at the beautiful facilities of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the  University of Georgia, offering a host of training, master classes and performances.


This summer's CAA classes will include a wide variety of subjects and include private lessons and chamber music.  Classes will include Reed Making, Phrasing, How to Become a Master Teacher and an Audition Class.  Qualified applicants will be either college students, post-college students, professionals, and a select group of high school students.
