Teachers of brass instruments at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music have a wide range of professional and performing experience, hailing from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. Beginning with the fundamentals 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 artists regularly give masterclasses.

The Brass Unit also encourages ensemble playing in formations such as the Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony. 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, bass trombone, trumpet, euphonium and tuba.
