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.

Learning to Play a Musical Instrument 

                                                 will help build your child's character by developing

                                                                skills and mindsets that will last a lifetime:

Bugle Boot Camp (1-6 weeks) 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  and get them off to a running start on the cornet.   Listening  to  short  recorded

MP3  files  will begin developing their listening skills 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.   After  four to six weeks  in  Bugle

Boot  Camp  they  will  be  ready  to  add  three  valves  and  get started in the Cornet Class!
