Each woodwind major has the opportunity for in-depth study on his/her instrument with a specialist who is both a performing artist and an experienced teacher. In addition to solo recital performance opportunities, woodwind students may also participate in a number of large and small ensembles.

Visiting artists in the woodwind area serve to enhance and expand the horizons of JMU woodwind students. The School of Music's Contemporary Music Festival, Flute-Fling, JMU Klarfest and Double Reed Day are a just a few of the many annual and regularly scheduled events that attract outstanding, world-class composers and performers to campus. The university's faculty woodwind quintet in residence, The Montpelier Winds, performs on campus and presents performances and master classes in Virginia schools.
