Jazz Performance - Saxophone, Clarinet and Flute
Woodwind instruments in jazz performance include any of the saxophone ‘family’, clarinet and flute. Our woodwind teachers are among the finest and most experienced jazz performers and educators in the country. In addition to a one-hour individual lesson, a weekly ‘masterclass’ reinforces and expands instrumental technique, serves to deepen knowledge of style and repertoire, and increases awareness of the role of the jazz woodwind specialist.

'Coming out of the sheltered high school environment I did not know what to expect at university. I have found the environment to be very friendly and a lot of fun. I have learnt a lot through the Jazz program. The lecturers have been more than helpful to me and I'm sure to all the other students. I look forward to completing my course and having fun in the program!'
