For you, music is not a hobby; it is going to be your career.
Many of today's most successful brass players began their careers at Berklee, including Wayne Andre, Avishai Cohen, Hal Crook, Stanton Davis, Roy Hargrove, Ingrid Jensen, Nick Lane, Delfeayo Marsalis, Tiger Okoshi, Jeremy Pelt, Claudio Roditi, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Jack Walrath, and Dennis Wilson.
They came to Berklee because of who we are: the world's largest independent music school and the premier institution for the study of contemporary music.
Berklee was founded on two revolutionary ideas: that musicianship could be taught through the music of the time, and that our students need practical, professional skills for successful, sustainable music careers. While our bedrock philosophy has not changed, the music around us has and requires that we evolve with it.
The Brass Department at Berklee offers the most comprehensive brass education you'll find anywhere. We provide individualized instruction in trumpet, trombone, French horn, tuba, and euphonium, allowing you to choose any of these as your principal instrument. We offer you professional faculty who specialize in each of these instruments, course work specifically designed to enhance your abilities, and abundant playing opportunities.
We respect the classical traditions that you may have established in your studies. We also know how your instrument fits in today's music world, and we give it the attention and respect it deserves. Brass instruments are versatile and can be effective in any musical style. Studying at a college that offers you all those styles is the most important way for you to turn your playing into a career.
