The School of Performing Arts will be hosting SDSU Woodwinds Day for middle and high school woodwind players on Saturday, March 21, 2020, on the campus of South Dakota State University. This is a day to help your students with a variety of topics, including technique, tone, scales, vibrato, articulation and warming up. We’ll be discussing audition preparation and how to deal with those pesky nerves. Current SDSU music students will be assisting throughout the day and will lead a discussion of opportunities to stay involved with music during college.
The day will also include performances by faculty and students. Everyone will join in the big flute, clarinet or saxophone choir finale! Parts will be sent out in advance so students are able to prepare.
Students of all ages and abilities are welcome and they will certainly take away information that will strengthen your band. This event costs only $5 per student and each student will receive a souvenir t-shirt. A schedule and registration form is included with this letter.
In order to get the ensemble music to you in a timely fashion, we ask that you register your students by February 14, 2020. Send registration forms to:
