What a huge success our Christmas course was! What was your highlight? Was it the mince pie tasting, and guessing which supermarket they were from? Was it the Christmas quizzes? Was it playing Sleigh Ride in the massed brass ensemble? Was it the soloist competition?
Thank you to all who came - Christmas courses might be here to stay! Merry Christmas everyone🎄

More pictures from our hugely successful second summer course at Purcell School last week - thank you for all of the wonderful messages and emails coming in. We loved it too!
Our obligatory Tutors vs Brasslings™️ rounders game was a hard fight, but the Tutors managed to scrape another win!

Brass Academy courses have been running for well over a decade now, and some of our old students are now doing really well in the profession... Horn player Jake Parker's association with the Brass Academy goes all the way back to 2013 when he came on a few of our courses as a student. He is now a tutor on our courses! He cites the Brass Academy as a huge motivator for pursuing his career in music. If that doesn't speak volumes, we're not sure what does! 📯
