This session, Brass Class will cover lots of good old New Orleans brass band-style tunes, in preparation for a Mardi Gras gig at the end of the session!
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 learn melodies by ear, build chords, work out harmonies, and maybe even improvise (don't be afraid!) on your brass instrument....so come prepared for a bit of brass-focused music theory! Students of all abilities are welcome -- just review your fingerings before you come so we can hit the ground running. Come with a brass instrument and a pencil, leave with the confidence to toot your horn in public!
