Faculty are expected to participate in departmental, school, and college-wide service, such as recruiting for their studio, Center for Music auditions, grading juries and recitals, assisting with ensemble placement auditions, and student advising, among other areas. The saxophone professor will also assist with the management of the school’s inventory of saxophones and related equipment.
