I love nothing more than to help students clarify and pursue their musical goals - something we emphasize at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. At UNCG, we exist to empower the next generation of clarinetists toward authentic, fearless performance. Our students expect to be challenged, encouraged, and equipped for success as they strive toward their unique goals. Together, my colleague Dr. Anthony Taylor and I lead a vibrant studio of clarinetists at the BM, MM, Certificate, and DMA levels.
UNCG clarinetists can plan to play in world-class large ensembles, perform a variety of solo repertoire, work together in chamber ensembles, attend selective Summer Music Festivals, interface with a diverse array of illustrious guest artists, and compete at the highest level. Former UNCG graduates have gone on to play and teach professionally, attend some of the country's finest music programs, and enter public school classrooms across the United States. We consistently draw undergraduate and graduate students from top studios across the country. Interested students can find the application and audition requirements for the studio here.
For guests, high school students, middle school students, and community members, we host an annual Clarinet Day on-campus that features workshops, masterclasses, performances, free minor instrument repairs, vendors, and much more! This year's Clarinet Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 26, 2022. You can register and find more information here:
