About SFCM’s Brass Department

Made up of principal brass chairs of the San Francisco Symphony, as well as principal players of the San Francisco Opera and Ballet orchestras, and a close-knit student body, SFCM’s Brass Department challenges and inspires the next generation of great players.

Studio sizes are kept small to ensure students receive the mentorship and performance opportunities they 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.
