Summer Brass Workshop

We are planning to run this program in-person for summer 2022; however, we must remain flexible in our response to COVID-19 developments. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our primary concerns, so remote workshops may be a necessary alternative. This page will be updated as soon as guidance from NYU central is available.

Each member of two world-renowned quintets, Manhattan Brass and Boston Brass, will lead online master classes. There will be two sessions per day for a total of 10 in a five-day period. Every topic imaginable will be covered that pertains to practicing, concert preparation, breathing techniques, networking, and sight reading just to name a few. Both ensembles will focus on success in the music world.
