At the University of Iowa Saxophone Studio, we invite special guest artists each year to give performances, lectures, and master classes. Through such appearances, we hope to expose the students to different ideas, approaches, and styles of teaching and performing, so in the process, their musical experience will be enriched. The goal for all of us is to become a better learner, performer, and teacher. Our distinguished guests have included:
