Participate in an intensive week of brass ensemble and private instruction in New York City. Study brass quintet and brass chamber music this summer with NYU's brass faculty as well as principal players from the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New York City Opera, and Broadway shows.
A special feature this year will be studying and rehearsing music from a hit Broadway show, culminating in attending a performance of that show. In addition, Ann Ellsworth will lead a session on how to produce and release a CD, followed by a recital to celebrate the release of her new solo disc.
- Open to high school students, college students and young professionals - ages 16 and up
- Benefit from participation in master classes, private instruction, workshops and concerts
- Study in New York City, music capital of the world
- Take trips to the theatre, concerts, and more in the evenings
- Conclude the workshop with a performance at an NYU venue with the workshop faculty
Activities include group warm up, master classes, large and small ensemble rehearsals, and faculty performances. Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, students will be able to easily access many legendary music venues and opportunities including the Blue Note, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Village Vanguard, and many Broadway shows. Summer in New York City is a great musical experience with street performers and music festivals in the parks, including NYU's own Washington Square Park.

Housing and Meal Plans
Students stay in private or shared rooms with one or two roommates in an NYU residence hall. The residence hall is located near Washington Square Park, a short walk from campus buildings. Campus meal plans range from 8 to 12 meals per week and include a card with $30 of Dining Dollars. Linens are provided; students should bring their own towels. The residence hall building has air conditioning and Internet access with an Ethernet cable. Students staying in NYU housing should move in on Sunday, June 23 and attend a required orientation session that evening. They must move out on Saturday, June 29.
NYU Public Safety Services officers are on duty 24 hours a day. Specially assigned Resident Assistants (R.A.) monitor discipline, including enforcing a curfew for students in this program, and help students as they adjust to living away from home. Because our standards for achievement are high, we accept highly motivated students who will enjoy the classes as well as the cultural activities. It is, therefore, important to know that failure to comply with regulations will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the program. Parents and/or guardians will be contacted as soon as any unsatisfactory behavior is recognized. Click here for more specific housing information.
A great benefit of the Summer Brass Workshop is the chance for students to experience life in New York City and Greenwich Village. The cost of living in the city is high. The activities fee students pay for the workshop covers only the primary cost of participating in the evening and weekend events and does not cover personal expenses. Students should budget for enough money to last the entire time they will be participating in the workshop. Students are encouraged to discuss expenses and decide upon a budget with their families prior to arriving in New York City.
If you have any questions please contact Professor Rojak at email@example.com
***PLEASE NOTE: Participants under the age of 18 will be required to attend activities throughout New York City on practically every evening during the program.***
