Your weekly private instruction focuses on performance. With practicing professionals you'll study not only flute, but also have opportunities to study auxiliary instruments such as piccolo and baroque flute. The woodwind department's carefully balanced enrollment ensures you ample performance experience in groups including two orchestras, new music ensemble and chamber music.

Please note, due to an increase in applications that led to an unusually large flute department this year, CIM will only accept recorded auditions for the fall class of 2019. Please contact admission@cim.edu should you have any questions about this change.
