Woodwinds

As you’ll see from our event schedule below, Rowan University’s Woodwind Division puts on a variety of performances, hosts a range of guest artists, and organizes collaborations. Our students have endless opportunities to explore, grow, and strive. They receive comprehensive training through individualized applied instruction, participation in ensembles, regular performances on and off campus, and diverse course offerings. The cultural hub of Philadelphia–just a hop, skip, and a jump away–offers students additional resources and inspiration.

The woodwind area boasts an active and supportive faculty dedicated to guiding students toward successful careers in music. They have toured nationally and internationally, commissioned new works, won grants for creative projects, directed non-profit organizations, won prizes at international competitions, performed with established orchestras, recorded and released commercial albums, and maintained private studios. Our faculty bring this collective energy and experience into their teaching and mentorship on a daily basis. Visit faculty bio pages below.

If you are interested in studying at Rowan and want to learn more, please visit our Music Admissions Page. The woodwind faculty welcome the opportunity to get to know our prospective students! There are many opportunities throughout the year to visit campus, meet current students, and work with the faculty.
