Summer Institute for Woodwind Studies

NYU will no longer be offering this woodwind performance summer workshop in 2023.

Spend a week studying, collaborating, and performing with our esteemed woodwind faculty and students from around the globe! Our 5-day program, designed for high school and undergraduate students, will be packed with activity! Throughout the week students will participate in private lessons, daily studio classes, special topics masterclasses, and virtual chamber music projects. Masterclass topics will include in-home recording and production, careers in the music industry, "singing" through your instrument, reed making, and more. The program will culminate with a special concert showcasing student chamber music projects.

Instruments Accepted: 
The Summer Institute for Woodwind Studies accepts students who study flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, and horn.
