Atlanta Mass Brass Workshop
workshops for for students grades 6-8, 9-12, and college undergraduates

The ATL Mass Brass Workshops will be held at Atlanta Music High School.  We're offering two workshops this summer.

  • middle school students are invited to attend workshop the week of June 3-8, 2019
  • High school students and college undergraduates are invited to attend workshop the week of June 24-29, 2019.  
Trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, and tuba players are welcome. 

The ATL Mass Brass Workshop is a locally unique camp that immerses brass players in both solo and ensemble music making with peers and a faculty comprised of professional performers and educators. Students will spend the week rehearsing as participants in several different brass ensembles, including daily rehearsals and coaching in brass quintet, like-instrument ensembles (such as trombone or trumpet choir) and a large, mass brass ensemble. Students will also have the opportunity to work on solo repertoire with accompanists.  The ATL Mass Brass Workshop also includes private lessons with faculty specialists. The week culminates in a Saturday morning concert by students.


Film Scoring  
for students grades 5-8 (prep), 9-12

Film Scoring is an Atlanta Music High School course designed to empower students with musical and technological understanding and skills necessary to create musical scores for short films. Film Scoring students will have the opportunity throughout the year to work on individual and group composition and film scoring projects with professional faculty, and they will collaborate to create a score for a final capstone film that will be created by students in the companion Catapult Studios film production course.

Film Scoring will meet weekly (Wednesdays 2:30 to 5:30) during the 2018-2019 school year, providing ample time to thoroughly cover a variety of subjects critical to scoring music for films. The curriculum will include studies in the following areas:

  • Composition and Songwriting, with flexibility in our approach to support each student composer’s stylistic interests and unique musical voice 
  • Practical music theory and musical analysis, with an emphasis on equipping students with vocabulary, understanding, and strategies for effectively using the building blocks of musical expression in composition and songwriting
  • Narrative composition and sequencing survey, with a focus on historical approaches to musical and dramatic narratives in songs, instrumental composition, sound designs and masterpiece film scores
  • Garage Band and ProTools training, with the goal of helping students tackle the technological tools and programs used for score production
  • Importing midi and recorded audio tracks into sound scores
  • Basic editing, mastering and project completion

Weekly course meetings will operate in an open classroom, workshop style approach that allows for individual attention and yet simultaneously fosters collaboration supportive of experimentation, risk taking and personal expression in the creative process.
