Developing in the tense atmosphere of concerts.
Wind instrument courses pursue solo and orchestra performances for specialized musical instruments. Individuals charged with conducting are first class instructors, among whom are performers active around the world. Exposure to the sounds, expressions, concepts and human nature of first class musicians facilitates a search for the spirit of various musical scenes, as well as a pursuit for the essence of music.
The characteristics of the curriculum include lessons for concerts and ensembles, as well as ample opportunities to perform in concerts. The responsibilities and tense atmosphere when performing in front of an audience most effectively induces the development of an individual as a musician. In addition to the capabilities of a soloist, individuals acquire a flexible expressive ability by performing chamber music, as well as participating in an orchestra, playing wind instrument music and taking part in a variety of ensembles. Learning such a diverse range of applications heightens the capability of an individual as a professional musician, while also nurturing a “problem solving capacity”, which is a human capability essential for society in the future.
