The UO woodwind faculty is focused on success and enrichment at a personal level, offering students weekly lessons and studio classes, regular chamber music coachings, frequent student performance opportunities, and ongoing advising. The woodwind area fosters a culture of peer learning in individual studios, encouraging students to learn from one another. Several times each term, the area meets together as a group to share topics relevant to all woodwind students. Faculty members maintain active careers as performers so they understand the life of the performing musician, and impart the business and interpersonal skills needed to flourish.
