Saxophone Studio

The Saxophone Studio at UWM’s Peck School of the Arts consists of undergraduate and graduate music majors, minors, and non-majors. We aim to promote the popularity of the saxophone through innovative, diverse, and versatile programming and performing. Our mission is to share music in ways that are both collaborative and engaging for students and community members. With education, performance, and outreach as a core component of our mission, students regularly perform on and off campus at various venues. Students study both classical and jazz, in addition to regularly premiering new works by composers both on and off campus.

Graduates of the saxophone studio have been accepted into prestigious graduate programs, summer festivals, arts administration roles, and have had a 100% job placement rate in the Wisconsin Public School System.
