Summer Bassoon Workshop at UNCSA June 24-June 29

Saxton RoseAgain this summer I’m excited to welcome bassoon students of all ages to the campus of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, NC for our Summer Bassoon Workshop. From June 24th to 29th, students can immerse themselves in the study of all things bassoon with UNCSA bassoon professor Saxton Rose. This intense one-week program includes private lessons, reed making classes, orchestral excerpt and college audition preparation, performance skills clinics, and master classes on a variety of bassoon related topics. Recital performances and chamber music collaboration with other summer workshop students complete this fun and intensive personal program of study. If you have any questions, please contact me.
