Many students have dreams of becoming part of a musical ensemble, whether through school or another group. A great way to increase their chances of making the cut is to have them take brass instrument lessons.
Brass instruments are considered “staple instruments” for school bands and orchestras, which means that students who can play them well have an excellent chance of a successful audition. Common brass instruments include the euphonium, the trombone, the trumpet, and the tuba. And, here at Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts, we offer lessons in all of them!
Suitable for All Skill Levels
In fact, these lessons are highly recommended for students who learned to play the recorder in fourth grade, a common practice in North Carolina. These students are armed with the basic skills necessary to make them successful at another wind instrument. However, even if a student is a true beginner, our dedicated staff can help him or her to build the foundation necessary to become a successful musician.
One on One Attention
Many students are fortunate to enjoy band education through their schools. However, nothing beats the helpful, one-on-one attention offered by our prolific instructors. By taking brass instrument lessons at home, students are sure to blossom in major ways. Instead of being just one out of many students hoping to get the teacher’s attention, they get the full and undivided focus of their instructor every time.
Crucial Element Instruction
If you search for brass instrument lessons near me, you may find other schools. However, we pride ourselves on offering the very best, proven instruction. While some other schools might just focus on general knowledge or basic techniques, we concentrate on building all the necessary foundational skills that will make a successful, skilled, and well-trained musician.
Our lessons include such crucial elements as how to properly manage the breath while playing, correct use of each instrument, and efficient, flexible fingering. Armed with this type of knowledge, the student will produce a better, richer sound from their instrument of choice. And, when students sound good and are successful at what they do, they’re more likely to enjoy themselves and develop a lifelong passion for music.
Is Your Child Ready?
Are you interested in our remote brass instrument lessons but are unsure if your child is ready? While we pride ourselves on being able to work with any child, beginning brass instrument instruction is typically most suitable for children starting at 8 and 9 years old. That’s because, by this age, most children have their adult teeth, which are helpful for proper playing of the instrument, and are capable of reading and meeting the physical demands required for playing brass instruments.
However, we recognize that every child is unique. For that reason, we’re always happy to assess your child, answer questions about musical readiness, and ensure your child gets the instruction most suited to him or her.
