Our Mission

The Frederick Fennell Wind Studies Program was created in 2003 by a generous donation from John and Sandy Segerstrom Daniels in honor of legendary wind conductor, Frederick Fennell. The program offers a focused, high-level, quality education to dedicated instrumental music students interested in pursuing advanced studies of wind instruments.

Meet Our Faculty

Our faculty is comprised of working professionals with a variety of backgrounds and training and the majority hold advanced degrees in their specialties.


The Wind Studies Program curriculum is made up of our Frederick Fennell Wind Ensemble, the Symphonic Band, Master Class, Chamber Music, Ensemble Sectionals, and Core Classes: Theory, Composition, and Career Explorations. Click the link below to learn more about our program's curriculum.
