The Woodwind Division is dedicated to training students at the highest level of musicianship as well as emphasizing a strong background in methodology and solo performance. The Division’s faculty members include distinguished soloists, educators, and principal chair holders in the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, as well as members of the SWARMIUS Ensemble, La Jolla Music Festival, and Art of Élan.
