Endangered Instruments Workshops

What is an Endangered Instrument? There are a few instruments in the orchestra for which there are a shortage of players–and therefore good players of these instruments are highly sought after. Currently, these instruments include the Viola, String Bass, Bassoon, Horn, and Low Brass (Trombone and Tuba). Our Endangered Instruments Workshops offer students the opportunity to try one of the Endangered Instruments and work with a top-notch coach.

Benefits of learning to play these instruments are myriad. Players of Endangered Instruments often find more performance opportunities, may move more quickly through the ranks of an orchestra, and often find success with both auditions and scholarships.

Each Endangered Instrument is taught for four weeks–students can attend one session of an instrument or attend all four.

All workshops are free of charge and open to both WYSO members and non-members!

Endangered Instrument Workshops will resume next January.
