For young students who are hoping to play in their school band or orchestra, taking woodwind lessons is highly recommended. And, here at Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts, we’re proud to work with students of all ages and with all kinds of goals.
Not only that, but we teach a variety of woodwind instruments, including the clarinet, the flute, and the saxophone, all of which are considered staples of most musical ensembles.
All Skill Levels Accepted
Most students who take woodwind lessons online or in person have at least some knowledge of the recorder. That’s because this basic instrument is commonly taught in the fourth grade in North Carolina.
Those who have practice with the recorder often find it easier to move on to another wind instrument. However, no previous knowledge or instruction is necessary or required to learn with us. We can teach everyone from true beginners to more advanced students.
Many students are fortunate to have basic band instruction offered through their schools. However, nothing beats the one-on-one, undivided attention that comes with our woodwind lessons online or in our studio.
We employ skilled instructors who specialize in the student’s instrument of choice. Their knowledge, plus their careful, focused attention on each student allows for more individual understanding and growth than students could ever hope to achieve in a crowded group setting.
If you search for woodwind lessons near me, you’d likely find lots of schools and teachers. However, we stand out because we focus on true technique and using the most proven musical education methods.
With us, students don’t just learn a few basics. Instead, they gain a true musical foundation. They’ll learn about breath management, correct use of embouchure (the use of the mouth and lips to create a full, clear tone without strain), and efficient, flexible fingering, all of which are crucial foundational skills for building a lifelong love of playing the woodwind instruments.

Our remote woodwind lessons are an excellent option for all kinds of students. However, we do recommend that students be at least 8-9 years old to begin taking lessons. At this point, their adult teeth are in, which is recommended for successfully playing a woodwind instrument. Furthermore, most students at this age can usually read well and can handle the physical demands of playing a musical instrument.
However, we do understand that every student is different. So, if you’d like us to assess a young student, have questions about your own child’s readiness, or would like to learn more about our many different musical offerings, we invite you to contact us. Together, we can make beautiful music!
