Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion

Students in the Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion Department get lessons in flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, and percussion. Whether you are already proficient in your instrument, or a beginner, you can find excellent training at the Colburn School individualized to your needs.

Private Traditional Instruction

Private lessons are 30, 45, or 60 minutes, depending on what the instructor determines. These sessions enable teachers to develop individualized lesson plans based on a student’s needs. If you’re interested in enrolling in private lessons, please fill out our online inquiry form.

After submitting the inquiry form, the department chair will contact you to provide program details and discuss scheduling. In some cases, an interview and audition may be required to place the student with the appropriate teacher.

Group Classes and Performances

As skills advance, students can supplement private lessons with group instruction through different classes and ensemble experiences. Visit our ensembles page for more information.
