A TRULY INTERDISCIPLINARY CURRICULUM FROM THE GROUND UP

What people are saying...

“As an artist with a passion for the natural trumpet and early music, the idea of using it as a teaching tool for beginners is exciting indeed. Brass for Beginners authors have laid out an adventure through time and across the globe that promises not only to instill a life-long appreciation for brass instruments but also to inspire the next generation of brass players!"

Allison Balsom

“Brass for Beginners® is the ideal foundation not only for music but for a complete, all-round education - it's such fun you don’t realize how much you are learning”

John Wallace

“Brass for Beginners is far and away the most effective method I have used for group instruction of young brass players. By mastering the fundamentals of tone production before introducing valves or slides, my students were able to progress further than their peers who were being trained in a more traditional program. Having taught the Brass for Beginners curriculum in private lessons and in a classroom setting, I can confidently say that this method has applications in a wide range of educational settings. ”
