Winds & Brass

The winds and brass programs at the Yale School of Music offer broad training in solo and ensemble playing as well as teaching and other opportunities outside the concert hall.

In private lessons and weekly studio seminars, students are encouraged to explore as broad a repertoire as possible, spanning music from the Baroque to the present day.

Chamber music is an integral part of the Yale experience, and students also play in various ensembles and configurations in the New Music New Haven series.

The Yale Philharmonia offers important orchestral experience, with a wide variety of repertoire and frequent opportunities to work with guest conductors.
