Woodwind Studies

Studies in Woodwind

  • Woodwind students have the opportunity to perform as soloists in solo recitals, group recitals and studio classes.
  • Chamber music opportunities exist for woodwind ensembles or varied instrumentation.
  • The large ensembles frequently feature student soloists on concert programs, tour programs and in the St. Olaf Orchestra’s annual Senior Soloists concert in May.
  • Instruction in flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, and jazz saxophone for music majors and non-music majors is offered in private weekly half-hour or hour lessons.
