What's Included

Woodwinds Department NCA offers a program of woodwind study for the early beginner through the advanced student. Study of woodwind instruments is available for flute (age eight and older), oboe (age nine and older), clarinet (age six and older), recorder (age five and older) and saxophone (age ten and older). The typical program for a beginning student includes a thirty minute Individual Lesson and a Monthly Master Class. Older students take lessons of forty-five to sixty minutes in length and, as they advance, participate in Repertoire Class, Chamber Music, and Orchestra. Woodwind Class Instruction for Beginners These small classes provide an introduction to study in an engaging and supportive group setting. Students learn the fundamentals of first-year study, including instrument technique and music reading. Classes explore a variety of music styles through group and solo playing or singing and participate in NCA concerts. Teachers facilitate the transition to individual study in the second year. Woodwind Repertoire Class Intermediate students participate in this weekly class, focusing on the interpretation and performance of compositions from the standard repertoire. Students are coached on solo works and learn from observing and participating in the work of their fellow students. This class provides a venue for students to perform each week and to discuss the various style periods and performance practices relevant to their repertoire.
