Clarinet & Saxophone at UND
Welcome to the Studio Page of Scott Sandberg, Associate Professor of clarinet and saxophone!
The goal of Applied Music is to develop all aspects of clarinet and saxophone performance - tone production, technique, articulation, fingerings, contemporary techniques, reed work, musicianship, sight-reading, intonation, performance and practice - through the study of scales, etudes, solos, master class and studio class attendance and participation, concert attendance and solo and chamber music performances. In other words, to learn how to communicate musically as an individual and in small ensembles.
Solo performance is an integral part of my students' growth and development. My students have successfully competed in local and regional solo competitions, perform regularly on semesterly Studio Recitals, monthly department-wide Showcase Recitals, solo recitals required of their degree programs and in master classes with guest artists.
Chamber Music is also a vital part of my students' overall experience. Depending on the available personnel, I coach saxophone and clarinet quartets, clarinet choir and various trios and duos of mixed instruments.
Regardless of major – Performance, Music Education, Music Therapy or Bachelor of Arts – our students are encouraged to strive for excellence in individual performance.
I invite all interested students to spend a day in the UND Music Department and experience "what we're all about." Students may rehearse with our ensembles – band, orchestra, choir, jazz, athletic – have a private lesson, play at a UND hockey or basketball game!, drop in on music theory and history classes or arrange for a campus tour.
If you have questions about Applied Music, specific degree programs, scholarship auditions or wish to arrange a visit, feel free to contact me at:
I look forward to hearing from you!
