Ellen Martins, Woodwind Department Chair
The woodwind department is composed of experienced and caring 'performer-teachers' with proven track records. Beginners and accomplished musicians of all ages and levels are guided by veteran teachers as they fulfill their goals and maximize their creative potential in a positive and supportive environment.
For students wishing to supplement their school instruction, advance their placement in District, State, and local youth ensembles, prepare college auditions, or simply desire to meet fellow music lovers, NEC Prep is the destination to pursue these goals at the highest standards. Seasoned guest performers share their expertise in public masterclasses. Weekly coaching in reed-making and small chamber ensembles, combined with frequent recitals allow teachers and students to join together as a community to explore the woodwind legacy.
