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 specialists, this ensemble supports students to participate in the Brooklyn Band Academy as well as their school band program.
