Dr. Ray Smith is a professor of saxophone at Brigham Young University. After receiving a Bachelor of Music Education from BYU, Smith went on to receive both his Master and Doctor of Music degrees in Woodwinds Performance from Indiana University. Dr. Smith may teach saxophone, but he is proficient in flute, bassoon, clarinet, and oboe as well as several other instruments. He can be found playing with the Utah Symphony or the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square periodically, and often with the Tantara band, Q’d Up. When he’s not playing music himself, he is probably directing BYU Synthesis, teaching musical clinics, or adjudicating a jazz festival.
