At a Glance

Tuition is available in orchestral and brass band instruments and our team of brass tutors has the expertise to address all areas of performance and technique by helping you to diversify your skills in both areas (where appropriate), as well as jazz and early music.

Alongside various band, orchestral and chamber music activities, is a full schedule of masterclasses and brass classes covering everything from practice technique to orchestral repertoire.

The department also offers bespoke tuition at postgraduate level, for student brass quintets who wish to consolidate their ensemble skills while developing their individual playing abilities.
