Every student receives a 90-minute one-to-one lesson each week on their principal study. Regular tuition is enhanced by visits from distinguished guest artists from across the globe.
As a Woodwind student, you will benefit from a diverse range of performance opportunities. Symphony, chamber and wind orchestra performances, opera productions and wind ensembles are central to your education.
