Some questions regarding Baylor Clarinet Studio:
I’m curious about opportunities for undergrad students in the Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra. How likely is it that underclassmen get chances to play in these?
I have five of seven in top band are undergraduates. Four of five in top orchestra are undergraduates. All undergraduates in the second orchestra, We are undergraduates emphasized school and I only have two top rated graduate students at anytime. Of course, everyone needs play an audition behind the screen at the beginning of school year. Further, more each of you will be taught by me or another faculty member instead of graduate students!!
