Wind Ensemble

Kenneth Amis, music director and conductor

The Wind Ensemble Department provides graduate and undergraduate students opportunities to study and perform the finest music composed for woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. Programs include works from the 16th through the 21st century for large wind ensemble, chamber winds, brass ensemble, percussion ensemble and woodwind ensemble. This flexibility of the wind ensemble’s instrumentation creates a concentrated musical environment for woodwind, brass and percussion students where they can experiment and develop their performance techniques within a conductor-led medium. My approach to wind ensemble teaching draws on the uniqueness of the ensemble and the specified course objectives.

Distinguished Artist in Residence–tuba

“I demand an intense and well-rounded playing schedule of all my tuba students. This is the best means of testing and strengthening the concepts and skills that are introduced and developed in private lessons. The curriculum and compact size of the tuba studio at Lynn are specifically designed for this approach, offering the serious tuba player constant opportunities for improvement, experimentation and discovery.”
