Dust off that trumpet, trombone, saxophone, clarinet or snare drum. Adults who have had prior experience on a brass, wind or percussion instrument, and students who have had at least two years of private lessons, are welcome to join BKCM’s community brass band. Explore brass band music from all corners, including songs, spirituals and modern pop from Cuba, New Orleans and India. With parts that are tailored for all levels of experience, this band is always a blast.

BKCM offers tuition-free enrollment for this class to all students currently taking private lessons. For further details on this program, please speak to a registrar.


BKCM offers a wide range of ensembles for students of all ages, levels and experience. Students are motivated to practice repertoire outside of class and encouraged by their peers to take on new challenges. Taught by experts in the field, our ensembles include performance opportunities and a chance to connect with a community of other instrumentalists who are interested in developing their artistry. Students enrolled in our private lessons may be eligible to join many ensembles free of charge; contact our registration desk for more information.
