Meet Our Woodwind Faculty

About the Woodwind Area

Students in the MSU woodwind area will find a full-time, performance-oriented faculty member devoted to each woodwind instrument. All faculty bring extensive experience as soloists and inform their instruction through an active performance schedule with national and international orchestras in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Toronto, and elsewhere.

Each studio has its own studio class that consists of a performance forum or discussion on various topics ranging from style and periods of music to reed making.   

Diverse opportunities exist for chamber music and solo performance, as well as to participate in the college's symphony and concert orchestras, and wind, symphony and concert bands.

A wealth of guest artists visit campus for master classes, lectures and performances, in keeping with the area’s focus on mentorship and professional performance.

The woodwind area at MSU is led by a faculty of experienced and active soloists and performers who foster a dynamic, supportive environment focused on nurturing the highest level of artistry in each student.
