The University of Arkansas Saxophone Studio is a welcoming community of about 20 undergraduate and graduate saxophonists at U of A. The students engage in solo, chamber, and large ensemble repertoire through weekly lessons, studio classes, quartet coaching, and saxophone Ensemble with Dr. Hetrick, as well as through ensembles with the University of Arkansas Bands and Jazz Area. In our weekly studio classes, we cover topics related to business and entrepreneurship, job readiness, musicians' health, saxophone pedagogy, reed maintenance and care, extended techniques, efficient practicing, performance anxiety, and much more. In addition to performances on campus and in the community, the studio has performed across the country at events such at the North American Saxophone Alliance Biennial Conference, the SHE Festival, and more.

University of Arkansas offers several degree plans; Music Education, Music Performance, Music Composition, Music Theory, a BA in Music, a Double Major, and a Music Minor. Each of these degree paths are eligible for scholarship. If you're interested in performing in ensembles, all majors are welcome!
