Woodwind Faculty

Woodwind Faculty at UNCSA: Tadeu Coelho, flute; Saxton Rose, bassoon, Robert Young, saxophone, Oskar Espina Ruiz, clarinet and Merideth Hite, oboe.

High School

Students in the High School Woodwind Program work toward developing excellence and ease in tone, intonation, rhythm, technique, articulation and musicality; confidence in performance; and learning standard solo and ensemble repertoire.

The intimate conservatory setting provides excellent performance opportunities for all students, under the direct supervision of artist faculty members Tadeu Coelho, flute; Saxton Rose, bassoon; and Taimur Sullivan, saxophone.

Students meet with the primary studio teacher for private lessons, master class, chamber ensemble, and sectional coaching for the larger ensembles. Additional performance in Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, the School of the Arts Contemporary Music Ensemble, and informal student organized ensembles, offers you the breadth of experience necessary for success in the music business. If you wish to specialize in the performance of jazz music you may choose to audition for the jazz ensemble, and enroll in jazz improvisation and jazz arranging. If you’re a double reed player, you will study reed-making, maintenance and repair.

 

Undergraduate

The goal of the undergraduate woodwind program at the North Carolina School of the Arts is to enable the student to refine technical skills and develop advanced interpretive techniques through the study and performance of significant works from the woodwind literature. All undergraduate woodwind students are required to perform a recital in their senior year. Ensemble participation is by juried auditions. Students may be chosen to perform with the Symphony Orchestra, Opera Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, School of the Arts Contemporary Ensemble, Cantata Singers and chamber music groups.

Comprehensive performance experience

Intensive personalized instruction - Preparation for career success

Graduate

The woodwind graduate program at the North Carolina School of the Arts offers the highest level of instruction by an internationally acclaimed faculty, tailored to the student’s needs and professional goals. Classes are small and students receive personalized attention. Every student is given a significant number of performance opportunities in both large ensembles and chamber music groups. The graduate program enables students to refine their technical skills and develop advanced interpretative techniques through the study and performance of significant works from the woodwind literature (see sample program repertoire below for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and saxophone.)

Other Program Features:

* Opportunities to perform outside the school
* Special teaching and performance assignments
* Two degree recitals
* Participation in Symphony Orchestra, Opera Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble and Contemporary Ensemble

As a conservatory, the School’s focus is on preparing students to begin their careers as performing artists; yet at the same time, the school actively involves the student with the practical aspects of earning a living as a musician. A combination of professional opportunities outside the School, along with this specially designed curriculum, widens the scope of the student’s career perspectives and constitutes a contemporary, market-sensitive approach to educating musicians.
