Brass Class: Square Roots!

Toot your horn this summer! This class will meet 3 times (Fridays, June 23 and 30th from 6-7pm and July 7 from 6-8pm) and culminate by playing at the Square Roots Festival in a class parade down the street for all hear in true brass band style.

If you've got a rusty old trumpet, horn, trombone, or tuba sitting around in your closet from those high school marching band days, this class might be for you. Too many brass players let their horns collect dust because they feel uncomfortable playing their instrument at the Old Town School and beyond. We want you to feel comfortable playing with other people so that we can hear the sweet sounds of brass floating through the halls.

The focus of Brass Class will be to play melodies, build chords, work out harmonies, and create bass lines on your brass instrument....so come prepared for some brass-focused music theory. Students of intermediate and advanced skill levels welcome — you should come knowing fingerings/positions for all notes on your instrument and be ready to learn 3-5 tunes to play in a parade. (Parade date/time is still TBA, but will be July 8 or 9.) Come with a brass instrument and a pencil, leave with the confidence to toot your horn in public!
