Woodwind Instruments

Our Woodwind staff have extensive performance experiences and/or pedagogy degrees. Emphasis is placed on fundamentals and developing tone, technique and musicality as well as standard repertoire. Improvisation is also taught. We offer performance opportunities in the form of at least 2 recitals per year, and optional participation in jazz ensembles, worship band and other groups.

Our standard instructors use the Suzuki and Rubank method books alongside other curriculum. We accept students from age 7 and up, though exceptions are made on a case by case basis.
