Description

Brass ensemble is for students who play trombone, trumpet, french horn or tuba and have had a minimum of one year of private lessons or enrollment in a school band program. Playing in a brass ensemble supports students’ breath support, tone production and intonation. Ensemble performance is essential for all brass musicians. Blending your sound with other brass musicians supports all aspects of proper brass technique. Students work on intermediate brass repertoire including classical, pop and jazz selections.

Taught by both a low brass and trumpet specialist, this ensemble supports students to participate in the Brooklyn Band Academy as well as their school band program. Students who join the brass ensemble should be able to play one major scale and have some experience reading basic notes and rhythms. To determine if you are ready for the brass ensemble please contact the community music school administrative team at cmsadmin@bkcm.org or speak to your private lesson teacher. 

Students in the brass ensemble are encouraged to join the Brooklyn Band Academy at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music.
