Join us for our annual saxophone workshop
devoted to middle and high school saxophonists.


This is a fun and intensive week of saxophone study that deals with all aspects of saxophone performance.

Students will perform in a large saxophone ensemble comprised of soprano through bass saxophones, work in smaller duets, trios, and quartets, and even attend sessions on jazz and improvisation.

The workshop is tailored to meet the individual needs of our participants of all levels. If you are an enthusiastic student of the saxophone and really love playing, then this is the event for you.

Instructors for the week are Robert Haley, Ravan Durr, Martin Wilkes and Emma Haley. Their many decades of direct experience, both teaching and performing, will benefit every attendee and provide multiple insights into all facets of the instrument.

The week concludes with our Instructors Recital on Thursday night, and the student performances on Friday afternoon.

The cost of the workshop is $200 and can be paid in two installments.

Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.

Application Deadline is May 15th. Reserve your spot today!

Brass Faculty

Jerry Brooks - Trumpet

Jerry Brooks brings his 40+ years of performing and teaching experience to Classic Winds in Marietta. Jerry's goal is to instruct students in all styles and levels of music, to create an atmosphere conducive to instrumental music with flexibility to adapt to any musical situation. How to practice, what to practice, when to practice, how much to practice: these key elements will guide the student to develop theirs gifts and talents. Anything can be built upon a strong foundation which depends upon good tone production, flexibility, breath control, and a passion for creating great music.

Mr. Brooks holds the Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Georgia. He has played trumpet and flugelhorn, sang, arranged, written, produced and recorded for various local bands in the Southeast, as well as performing and/or recording with such groups as The Four Tops, The Temptations, Joe South, The Original Drifters, The Tams, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many others. He now teaches private trumpet lessons, and plays trumpet in the Cobb Wind Symphony, Cobb New Horizons Band, First Redeemer Church Orchestra, Macland Baptist Church Orchestra and is trumpet soloist/singer at Iron Hill Baptist Church.
