CHICAGO STATE UNIVERSITY CLARINET STUDIO
The Chicago State University Music Department is a predominantly black program located on the far south side of Chicago. CSU offers a variety of options for music majors wishing to pursue a BA, including music, music education (PreK-12), music production, and gospel music. The clarinet studio, led by Natalie Szabo, features some of the most talented and active students from across campus. Most are members of CSU’s Marching Soul of Chicago, a new marching band formed in 2019. Our studio provides great mentorship and support through lessons, master classes, ensembles, sectionals, and chamber ensembles. Special emphasis is placed on embracing diversity and creating a safe and inclusive learning experience for students.
