Brass lessons are open to children and adults of all skill levels. All brass instruments require physical size and stamina, and as a result, we recommend children starting at the age 9. If a student younger than age 9 shows an affinity for an instrument in the brass family, we suggest starting with piano, which will provide a strong musical foundation that can easily be applied to the study of a brass instrument when the student is older. If a young musician particularly enjoys the feeling of producing sound by blowing air through an instrument, flute or recorder (Woodwinds Department) might be an appealing alternative.
Brookline Music School is committed to ensuring that students of all ages and abilities have a positive private lesson experience. Students are individually placed with a teacher based on learning style, experience, and musical interests.
Private lesson students also receive the benefit of multiple opportunities to perform in recitals, salons, exclusive departmental events, workshops, and masterclasses.
