The Jacobs School of Music offers two programs in the woodwind area for pre-college students:
Sessions: Fall and Spring semesters only
Recorder students are provided with a foundation for performance technique and a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Each child will receive one private lesson per week, and may also choose to add one ensemble lesson per week.
Program only offered in the Spring Semester
The Young Winds Program is designed to supplement the middle school band experience of Bloomington area instrumentalists. Our instructors are experts in the areas of flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet (all types), saxophone (all types), French horn, trumpet, baritone horn/euphonium, trombone, tuba, and percussion. Students are separated into two ensembles, a beginner band and an advanced band. Each ensemble performs several full band pieces, as well as a section feature on the last day of the program. The program takes place from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday mornings in the Musical Arts Center, from January to April.
