Brass like you’ve never heard it before.

Transform your playing alongside players from the finest ensembles in the country.

Our brass faculty includes all the principal brass chairs of the San Francisco Symphony, as well as principal players of the San Francisco Opera and Ballet orchestras. Studio sizes are kept small to ensure that you get the mentorship and performance opportunities you need, and a yearly side-by-side reading of major brass repertoire with faculty members provides insight into the finer points of orchestral brass performance.
