Music not only provides a rich and rewarding learning experience, but children who study a musical instrument have been shown to be more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education.
When choosing an instructor to teach you an instrument in the Cedar Rapids area of Iowa, you deserve to find an instructor with experience and education. With BW Woodwinds, I provide your budding student with complete and comprehensive music lessons. I specialize in woodwind instruments, including saxophone, clarinet, flute, bassoon and oboe backed by my years of experience teaching at the collegiate level and my background in music and education. An expert performer and educator since 1976, I am qualified not only to play the instruments, but to teach that skill to others. I have a Bachelor of Music in education and a Master of Fine Arts in saxophone, and more than 40 years of experience playing and repairing a full range of woodwind instruments.
I would love to pass the joy of music on to you or your child interested in picking up one of these great instruments. Lessons are held in my private studio, and session times are flexible to work with your schedule. Contact me today to find out more or to schedule an appointment to come in and find out which woodwind is right for you!
