Class Brass: Brass instruments for all levels (MPF2255.02, section 2)

Chris Rose

Let’s get together and make some noise! This class will be a chance to get together once a week and play brass instruments together. You can bring your own brass instrument (trumpet, horn, trombone, baritone, or tuba) or borrow a trumpet or trombone from Jennings.

There will be two sections: first seven weeks and second seven weeks, one credit each. You can join one or both. There will be an emphasis on peer to peer learning, with students sharing their past knowledge and promoting curiosity in each other. We’ll choose music so that everyone can feel challenged and supported while we advance our skills, whether you are brand new or have been playing for a while.

In December, students from both sections will be invited to play some holiday music in Commons.

Learning Outcomes:
Students will:
-Explore the dimensions of peer-to-peer learning and modeling.
-Observe and record the body's role in learning and mastering new skills.
-Grasp fundamental aspects of brass playing and the commonalities between brass instruments.
-Understand basic music reading and music theory concepts.
-Learn to arrange and transcribe songs for the ensemble.
