Puget Sound Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE) is dedicated to advancing the talents of young wind ensemble musicians striving to expand their musical skills. PSYWE provides high expectations for the participants with demanding literature. The rehearsal skills required will, in turn, support the bands of the public and private schools they attend.

Our conductor, Dr. Robert Taylor is Director of Bands and Chair of the Wind and Percussion department at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, where he conducts the University Wind Ensemble and University Band, directs the theatre orchestra, teaches instrumental conducting, and works with music education students in the Master of Arts in Teaching program.

Dr. Taylor received the Master of Music and Doctor of Music degrees in conducting from Northwestern University, where his primary teacher was Dr. Mallory Thompson. Prior to his time at Northwestern, he received the Bachelor of Arts degree in Trumpet and Music Education from Humboldt State University and served as Chair of the Performing Arts Department and Director of Bands at Eureka High School in northern California. Under his direction, the Eureka High Jazz Ensemble and Symphonic Band earned recognition for excellence by Downbeat Magazine, the Selmer Corporation, and Grammy Signature Schools, placing Eureka High among the finest school music programs nationwide.
