The Brass Program is an integral part of the Frost School of Music. Students in this program work hand in hand with our internationally renowned faculty, which includes the former principal trumpet of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the principal horn of the L.A. Chamber Orchestra. Our students maintain an active performing role both within the Frost School and around Miami. They perform in our Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and many other fine ensembles with the performance department. They also play a prominent role in the fine Jazz Department ensembles as well.
Within the Brass Program itself, there are many ensembles. These include Brass Choir, Trombone Choir, Horn Choir, and Brass chamber Music. These small ensembles are active performing groups that offer a special focus on brass techniques, while also providing personal contact with our fine brass faculty. Each studio has weekly Studio Classes, which serve as a way to cover topics and address issues that are often not covered in regular lessons. The program also features a weekly Brass Forum: a recital class for solo and/or ensemble performance. This Forum offers students a performance opportunity in an informal setting, providing a valuable resource for aspiring young performers.
