Brass and Woodwinds

John Drew - Coordinator of Winds and Percussion

Our success is demonstrated by our many graduates employed by professional ensembles and universities.

The Florida State University College of Music woodwind and brass faculty have an illustrious tradition of performance pedagogy. Besides receiving exceptional instruction from faculty members who are readily available, our students enjoy the advantages of weekly master classes, frequent contact with guest artists and clinicians, and the opportunity to perform in a wide and diverse variety of ensembles of outstanding quality.

The undergraduate winds program has a total commitment to preparing students for the demands of the profession, including qualifying for assistantships at the graduate level. Freshmen and sophomores benefit from the experience of a chamber winds program that is unparalleled. The numbers who have employment in professional ensembles or enjoy faculty positions with many of the most prestigious universities and conservatories evidences the success of our graduate students. Scholarships for undergraduate and assistantships for graduate students are available to those who qualify.
