Brass Department

The Brookline Music School Brass Department includes trumpet, trombone, euphonium/baritone, tuba, and french horn.

Brass Lessons

Ages

All brass instruments require physical size and stamina, and as a result, we recommend 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.

Requirements

All students will need an instrument for home practice between lessons.

A good student-teacher relationship is essential, so students are individually placed with a teacher based on learning style, experience, and musical interests. Our distinguished faculty members are dedicated to providing engaging and personalized musical mentorship for each student. In addition, private lesson students have the opportunity to perform in recitals and salons as well as participate in exclusive departmental events, Dynamic Duos, evaluations, workshops, and masterclasses. Private lessons also include written progress reports from faculty and end-of-year parent/teacher phone conferences.
