This Pbrass Band class is designed to expose students to the world of instrumental music via the brass band repertoire! The Pbrass Band is composed of students that will learn cornet, trumpet, or trombone for the first time (0-1 years experience).

No experience is necessary – only the will and desire to play an instrument.  Musical topics are introduced such as reading, music notation, analyzing and evaluating music, as well as composing and improvising simple melodies. Participation in band encourages teamwork, responsibility, self-confidence, discipline, cooperation and goal achievement. Plus, playing in the Pband is fun! Every student who is taking Pband will receive an instrument once they have done mouthpiece testing. This will let the student and parent know which instrument is recommended for the student to be successful based on his/her physiology and interest. Although there will be occasional written work, most of the work for this class is made up of class rehearsals, practicing at home, and performances. The students will present 2 concerts this year.

I will provide all books and sheet music for the students.

Everyone starts at “square one” and progresses together in band. I am always available for extra help if students (or parents!) feel they need it. Students will be taught the necessary skills step-by-step.
