The Woodwind family is broken up into flutes (flute, piccolo), single reed instruments (saxophones, clarinet) and double reed instruments (oboe, bassoon). Woodwinds bring beauty, drama and character to every style of music. They anchor the orchestra and are front and center in most jazz ensembles. From Classical and Celtic, to Klezmer and Punk Rock, there’s no shortage of stages where woodwind players can shine.

If you’re in a school orchestra, band and marching band, want to play professionally or are simply playing for the love of music, West Side Music Academy can help you sharpen your skills and expand your skill set.

Students need to bring their own instruments to lessons.
