Fun comes from achieving results

Brass Class focuses on playing the instrument efficiently, building musical literacy and becoming a musician who loves to play.

You will be encouraged to enter grade exams.

AllBrassClass teaching focuses on expressing meaning in music, how we produce quality sound, breathing and stamina, and learners making performance decisions. After all, that is what good brass players are constantly doing in real playing situations.

Take your music to the world

If you are thinking about a school age learner, encouraging performance preparation and ‘playing out’ are essential before teenage years roll along.

All Brass Class seeks to help brass players be confident about themselves. Enjoy contributing to varied music-making at home and in the community.
 

We want to build your confidence to play from both written music, and by air. An emphasis on social learning means you’ll be inspired to achieve what is possible.
