Saxophone Studies

The saxophone studios at University of Tennessee are committed to developing musicianship based on the foundation of saxophone pedagogy and the knowledge of saxophone repertoire and history. Whether the emphasis is jazz or classical, performance or education, each student is encouraged to progress to the height of their potential, regardless of degree program. At the end of the degree, saxophonists will graduate as independent, well-rounded musicians who are capable of making mature musical decisions and showing creativity through their art.

There are two distinct saxophone studios at UT - one focused on classical studies, and the other dedicated to jazz studies. Students are encouraged to work with both professors during the course of their degree, and both mediums are valued as creative outlets and professional endeavors.

These individual studio sites provide more information for prospective students as well as information on current students, upcoming events, and the audition process.
