The University of Alabama woodwind faculty, comprised of specialists on each instrument, have earned international recognition as both performers and educators. Their strong commitment to the development of outstanding musicians and educators is evidenced by the steady growth of the woodwind area and by the outstanding record of our graduates who hold positions in orchestras, educational systems, and performing ensembles around the world.

The artists/teachers of the woodwind area bring to their studios the experience gained through many years as performing and recording artists and as educators working with a wide rage of students. These experiences span a vast number of idioms including symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, solo careers, jazz and commercial ensembles, and all areas of teaching.
