Atlanta Mass Brass Workshop


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.

Registration 

Please complete the online form here.  We will set up your account, invoice you and add the student to our roster.

After registering, to help with ensemble formation, placement, and planning, students will be prompted to send in an audio OR video recording of themselves performing 2 short contrasting (1 slow/lyrical, 1 technical) excerpts each about 1 minute in length. Ideally, the student will submit these excerpts via Youtube link; alternatively, we will create a portal for direct video submission.  If the student does not have two excerpts readily available, the student can record themselves playing the Georgia All State Études, available here.
