As well as regular individual lessons and instrument classes with principal, guest and visiting teachers, the woodwind students at ANAM take part in weekly Wind Classes, in which solo, chamber, orchestral and audition repertoire are performed, recorded, discussed and workshopped. Content for all classes is flexible, responding to individual student goals (as established with each student, their teacher and ANAMs Artistic Director) as well as all aspects of the students’ current and future musical activities both within and outside the ANAM program.

It is very rewarding to see our young musicians move out into the music world with success and energy, and also to see the overall standard of our new students gradually rising year by year: the ANAM phenomenon is snow-balling, and it’s very exciting to be part of that. (David Thomas, ANAM Head of Woodwinds)
