Preparatory Woodwinds


The age at which a student may begin studying a woodwind instrument is dependent upon the child's physical size and stamina. Elijah Wirth, the department chair, will be happy to answer any questions about the appropriate starting age for these instruments.

As students progress in their studies, the Preparatory recommends that students and/or parents discuss the possibilities of Chamber Music, Wind Ensembles, or Youth Orchestra with their instructor. Students wishing to explore jazz may be interested in our Jazz Ensemble. Please contact prior to registering for placement.
