Department: BRASS

Starting in conjunction with level three of their private instruction, performance majors take recital preparation classes to provide enhanced focus on repertoire and public performance on their principal instrument.

The Brass Department at Berklee emphasizes a solid foundation in the standard technical challenges of professional performance. This includes the basics—breathing, embouchure, articulation, valve or slide technique—as well as theoretical studies involving scales, chords, arpeggios, and repertoire. Students are encouraged to become versatile and skilled players in a variety of genres, as well as developing their own unique style and perspective.
