  • Woodwind Performance
    Welcome to the Woodwinds Department at CU Boulder!

Welcome to the Woodwind Program at CU Boulder! The department consists of six artist teachers who represent the performance areas of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and saxophone. We are all active as performers and pedagogues, and are recognized nationally and internationally as leaders in our field.

As a student pursuing an undergraduate or advanced degree in woodwind performance, you will receive a weekly one-hour individual lesson and studio coaching in solo, chamber and orchestral repertoire. You'll also have the opportunity to learn from distinguished guest artists in master classes, workshops and recitals.

There are numerous ensembles to join, including the University Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Concert Band, Chamber Orchestra, jazz ensembles, chamber groups and various world music ensembles.
