The #1 Woodwinds/Brass School
The jazzy fun instrument. You can find these instruments in concert bands, jazz bands, marching bands, and symphonies. Many of the woodwind instruments like clarinet, flute, and saxophone share similar fingerings and most of the brass instruments have similar mouthpieces making for an easy transition from trumpet to trombone or euphonium. Maybe you’re a really excellent student on the trumpet and you’re ready for a bigger challenge with tuba or French horn. Taking private lessons is a great way to learn a new band instrument quickly.
Which instrument should you choose? When it comes to band instruments like woodwind and brass, many students start with one instrument before trying another. Some people select specific instruments because a good friend or family member plays it. Maybe you like how it looks and feels in your hand. Perhaps you tried out several and feel like you sound best on the trumpet. If it’s the light airy flute, jazzy saxophone, or fearless trumpet, we’ll help you master your instrument so you can perform with confidence.
The most typical instruments you’ll find in this family are clarinet, flute, and saxophone. While each instrument is unique in it’s own right, many students can easily transition from clarinet to saxophone or flute to piccolo, because they all have similar fingering patterns. Once a student becomes proficient in one woodwind instrument he/she can begin to develop skills among many of the other woodwind instruments. If you’re a student hoping to master multiple instruments, this is the family for you! Whether you’re interested in the airy flute, expressive English Horn, or jazzy Saxophone, we can teach you how to make music with your favorite instrument.
Welcome to the world of brass. You’re bold, fearless, and bright. You love to be the center of attention and to show off to your friends. This family is loud and proud. Usually gold or silver with similar mouthpieces, these instruments use a buzzing embouchure to create vibrant tones. The technique between instruments differs, but don’t worry, we’ll help you figure out the difference and similarities.
