Georgia Brass Ensemble Workshop


Georgia Youth Brass Ensemble Workshop
for students grades 9-12, college undergraduates

The Georgia Youth Brass Ensemble Workshop will be held at Atlanta Music High School the week of June 4-8, and is open to high school and undergraduate students alike.  Trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, and tuba players are welcome. 

The Georgia Youth Brass Ensemble Workshop is a locally unique camp that immerses brass players in 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. The Georgia Brass Workshop also includes private lessons with faculty specialists. The week culminates in a Saturday morning concert by students and the Georgia Brass Band, the resident ensemble for the week.

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.
