University of the Pacific's woodwind faculty will prepare you to succeed in a wide range of career options, including orchestral membership, chamber music, studio recording, free-lance performance, teaching or broader entrepreneurial pursuits. We are committed to your success after graduation.
One-on-one nurturing attention is given to each student in weekly lessons. Excellent staff pianists and inspiring classmates provide ample opportunity to hone your collaborative skills. All of our woodwind studios offer like-instrument ensemble playing, as well as instruction on various auxiliary instruments.
You will also benefit from frequent guest artists visiting the Pacific campus and from our proximity to the Stockton Symphony and other excellent regional orchestras and arts presenters—as well as to the world-class San Francisco Symphony, Opera and Ballet—all offering tremendous experiential learning opportunities nearby.
