Teachers of brass instruments at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music have a wide range of professional and performing experience. Our Brass staff includes principal players with the Sydney Symphony, the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, offering students the skills to become versatile performers. Beginning with the basics of brass playing, we encourage students to develop according to their interests and talent in virtuosity, advanced repertoire and historically informed performance practice. In addition, visiting international players regularly give masterclasses.

We also encourage ensemble playing in formations such as the Big Band and Conservatorium orchestras. Other ensembles offer the opportunity to explore new music for brass and to play period instruments in the Early Music Ensemble.

Principal study is available in horn, trombone, trumpet, euphonium and tuba.
