Merriam’s Brass and Woodwind department is a broad group of both teachers and instruments. It includes trumpet, flute, alto/tenor saxophone, trombone, and tuba – and our teachers are equally diverse.
Patrick Smith, Felicia Wirahardja, Prince Cave, Laura Chambers, Terry Lim, Michelle Cruz, and Pat Carey make up just some of our BWW teachers here at the Merriam School of Music.
And what makes them our picks to teach you or your child?
Whether it’s knowing exactly what piece to select to work on range or breath technique, or keeping up to date on all the latest pedagogical and method materials, a teacher’s experience is key to inspiring their students. And all of our teachers in this key department have a long track record and passion for doing just that.
So whether you’re brushing up on skills already learned in school, or you’re excited to start the journey of music with a Brass or Woodwind instrument, these teachers are your key to success.
