ABOUT OUR WOODWIND AND BRASS PROGRAM (AGES 9+)
Clarinet, saxophone, flute, oboe, trumpet, horn, tuba, and trombone instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. Most of our wind students are preparing to be in or already in band or orchestra at school, and have enrolled in private lessons to get them the help they need in their music, learn additional solo repertoire, or audition for a higher chair in their band or orchestra. Our instructors have been extremely successful in helping students to reach their goals and succeed in their school ensemble.
WINDS FOR BEGINNERS
All of our woodwind and brass instructors love working with beginners, and have experience creating a structured program to help students master foundational aspects such as good posture, embouchure, breathing, intonation, tone production, note-reading, rhythm, theory, and more while ensuring that the student is having a positive experience and loving their lessons. Whether your child is preparing to start a wind instrument in school soon, or whether they just want to give one of these beautiful instruments a try, our instructors will help to create a strong foundation.
WINDS FOR EXPERIENCED STUDENTS
Whether students come to us with prior experience from their school orchestra or a private teacher, or whether they started with us as beginners and continued to advance, we know how to help them reach their next goal. Intermediate or advanced woodwind and brass students learn how to play more challenging music and fine tune and polish their playing by mastering more advanced techniques and theoretical applications. Whether students want to learn a new style, prepare for a competition or audition, or just keep playing for fun, we have the skills and experience to get them there.
WINDS FOR ADULTS
Many of our adult woodwind and brass students have always had the dream of playing one of these instruments, and many others played as a child and wish to pick their instrument back up again. Whether students have a busy career, are a busy parent, or are a retired adult, our instructors are delighted to help them learn and enjoy how to play their favorite songs and styles of music.
