KMI offers private lesson instruction in flute and saxophone, provided by very highly qualified and experienced teachers. As KMI grows and the student body is more advanced, faculty will be recruited to enable developing and offering the more advanced programs in woodwinds. Likewise, additional faculty will be recruited to begin offering clarinet, oboe and bassoon.

Ensemble: Playing with other instruments is ex-tremely important to a woodwind student, so all students are required to perform duets, trios and quartets with faculty and other students on a regular basis. The chosen instructional materials include ensemble pieces with every lesson to help develop the student’s ability to play with others. Eventually, KMI hopes to be able to sponsor a chamber orchestra or small wind en-semble to allow our woodwind students opportunity to perform in a larger ensemble. Until that time, students are required to participate in their school or community orchestra (See Section on Ensembles).

Accompaniment: In addition to ensemble playing, all woodwind performers must learn to play with piano accompaniment. Highly skilled KMI piano faculty are available at lessons and for recitals to accompany woodwind students. When appropriate, advanced piano students will be invited to accompany woodwind students in recitals to give advanced piano students the educational opportunity of accompanying a soloist.
