The woodwinds area at Colorado State University provides talented flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and saxophone students with world-class training in the areas of performance and pedagogy. The woodwind experience at CSU enhances our student's passion for music by providing a solid foundation for a lifetime of creative activity. The objectives of the curriculum are to develop professional perceptions and skills in the art of music as it is needed by performers, teachers, therapists, and those interested in other possible careers where a high level of music-making is maintained. Expectation levels are consistent with those of university study in preparation for a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music, and Master of Music. Areas of concentration within these degree programs include music education, music therapy, music performance, composition, and conducting.
