Learning to Play a Musical Instrument
will help build your child's character by developing
skills and mindsets that will last a lifetime:
HOW OLD DOES A STUDENT NEED TO BE TO GET STARTED?
You are never too old to learn any musical instrument - but...
why not get an early start?
As soon your child has grown their permanent front teeth (around seven years old - 2nd/3rd grade) they are able to begin learning a brass horn! The BBA's structured step by step program will ensure your child develops valuable practice habits and begins building a solid musical foundation.
is a physical conditioning program
that will prepare your student to begin cornet lessons by starting with the
Cornet Bugle. This instrument has been designed by, and manufactured
exclusively for The Brass Band Academy. It is built using
the body of the traditional British short model cornet and
and will produce a beautiful mellow sound. Practicing a
few simple exercises each day will start building your student's lip
muscles as they learn how to make a clear tone and form individual notes. Listening to
short recorded MP3 files will begin developing their musical ear and help organize their daily practice time. Weekly group lessons establish clear goals and practice objectives to
show your child exactly what they need to do each step of the way.
Best of all, BUGLE BOOT CAMP IS LOADS OF FUN! The class is divided into individual teams
of 3 to 4 students that compete for points in a series of games that are designed to build the physical skills needed to play a brass horn. Your child will be so busy getting ready for the
next set of games that they'll never realize that they are actually practicing and learning to play
an instrument. After five weeks in Bugle Boot Camp they will be ready to add three valves and get off to a running start in Cornet Class!
