Saxophone study at CWU
When you choose to study saxophone at CWU you receive well-rounded exposure and experience in many performance settings along with directed, intensive training for careers in teaching, performance, and research.
With many solo, chamber, jazz and large ensemble experiences, the performance opportunities provided by the Music Department combine well with the “learn by doing” approach offered in private lessons and studio classes.
Frequent special events, featuring regional, national, and international guest performers and ensembles augment these opportunities to provide more “real world” exposure to the challenges of musical careers.
Current and former students perform with such groups as US armed service bands, the Yakima Symphony, as well as the Seattle Opera, Boston Philharmonic, and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra.
