Learn to play a Woodwind Instrument

Learn to play a Woodwind Instrument


There is bound to be a woodwind instrument to suit your personality; the instruments belonging to the woodwind family are so varied. The mellow sound of a jazz saxophone, the charming playfulness of the clarinet, the agile and cheery flute or the warm reedy timbre of the oboe and it’s big brother, the bassoon, will capture your imagination and take you on a musical voyage of discovery.

Woodwind instruments are sought after in concert bands, jazz and swing bands. Positions in classical orchestras for woodwind instruments are fewer than stringed instruments but are very rewarding for those that are successful. There is a wealth of classical music written for solo woodwind and small groups of woodwind instruments.

Edsential has a range of woodwind instruments for you to try in order to find out what suits you best. You can hire an instrument from us while you make up your mind whether it is the right one for you.

Individual 20 or 30 minute lessons are available. As students progress, there are plenty of opportunities for young people to join groups, for example; Chester Schools Concert Band.

Every pupil has a practice notebook to ease communication between home and music centre. Pupils receive a short report detailing their progress during the year. There are regular opportunities for performance in concerts. Learning to play an instrument is a lifelong skill which can benefit young people socially and academically. We look forward to receiving your enquiry.
