Woodwind Studio

Performers and the Library

The UWM Music Library is a great place for studying, researching papers, and listening to music. It's also a great place to discover new music for your instrument. We have thousands of scores for solo instruments and small ensembles for recital and gig repertory, both from many years of purchases and from generous gifts from musicians like Judith Bentley (flute) and Tele Lesbines (percussion). This guide will introduce some of the techniques you can use to locate new repertory through the library.
