When can I register?

On-line registration opens October 1.  On-line registration closes four days prior to the event.

What should I bring to Furman Single Reed Day?

You should have your instrument, reeds, music (solo and all-state audition music),  a notebook for taking notes, a pencil or pen, and money for vendors.

What is a master class?
A master class is a group session in which a teacher coaches a student. These usually involve a single student performer but include feedback and advice for all in attendance. They are valuable ways to learn from one another and excellent opportunities to perform.
What will the vendors be selling?
Reeds, music, accessories, and mouthpieces. There will also be clarinets, saxophones and other equipment available for trial and purchase.
