The woodwind faculty and students of Rowan University welcome you! We welcome you to explore our web page, to come hear a concert, or attend one of our master classes. Our talented, enthusiastic faculty is dedicated to your growth and progress as an instrumentalist, a musician, and a contributing member of a thriving arts community.

Through rigorous, carefully guided private study, playing in chamber music and large ensembles, master classes, and public performance as well as concert attendance, Rowan woodwind students engage in all facets of musical participation and learning.

You may have already heard members of our woodwind faculty performing if you've ever been to the symphony or the opera or ballet in Philadelphia, or perhaps a show in Atlantic City or on Broadway. We are all active performers who believe that our continued engagement in live music helps keep us learning and moving forward, all of which we can share with our students. Explore our resumes and see who we are. Come hear us play.

If you've read it all and still want to know more, email Dr. Tomasone.
