Study of woodwind instruments is available for flute (age eight and older), oboe (age ten and older), clarinet (age eight and older), bassoon (age ten and older), recorder (age seven and older) and saxophone (age ten and older). The typical program for a beginning student includes a thirty minute lesson and a Musicianship Class. Older students take lessons of forty-five to sixty minutes in length and, as they advance, participate in Repertoire Class, Chamber Music, and Orchestra.
Woodwind Repertoire Class
Advanced teenagers participate in this weekly class, focusing on the interpretation and performance of compositions from the standard repertoire. Students are coached on solo works and learn from observing and participating in the work of their fellow students. This class provides a venue for students to perform each week and to discuss the various style periods and performance practices relevant to their repertoire.
