University of Rochester
While saxophone activities have been taking place at the Eastman School of Music for more than 60 years - since the founding of the Eastman Wind Ensemble in the 1950's and through Sigurd Rascher's summer workshops in the 1960's - the study of the instrument at Eastman effectively began in 1972, with the appointment of Ramon Ricker as the school's first professor of saxophone. In 2004, Chien-Kwan Lin was appointed as the school's second professor of saxophone, and currently presides over the studio's expansion and continued legacy of excellence.
For over four decades, Eastman saxophone graduates have been prominent educators, award-winning performers, and important contributors to the American cultural life. As a globally renowned studio, Eastman saxophone students have consistently distinguished themselves as prizewinners in prestigious competitions at the national and international levels.
