Course programme

Woodwind

Introduction

Woodwind students receive an intensive and thorough training centre around principal one-to-one lessons, delivered by reputable soloists and leading figures from top orchestras and chamber groups. They are enthusiastic and supportive, creating an environment for our students that is both caring and demanding. In addition, frequent masterclasses are given by distinguished, international musicians, such as Wissam Boustany, Meyrick Alexander, Maurice Bourgue and Anthony Pay.

Teamwork is the key element of the training offered and the relatively small size of the department ensures an enormous and diverse range of performance opportunities. Symphony, Chamber and Wind Orchestra concerts, opera productions, wind ensembles and chamber groups are included in the spectrum of activities. The quality of the teaching and the variety of performing experience offer the musical challenges and inspiration for a student's professional ambitions and the space to develop as an individual musician.
