The Buzzing Brass Pathway​

Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced musician Buzzing Brass is for you. To insure the best results yearly lessons are recommended.


Beginners start with 30 minute lessons using the Buzzing Brass Method Book One or the Essential Elements 2000 Book 1. As students progress the length of lessons can increase to firstly 45 minutes and then finally 1 hour.


Depending on the progress made in their first year, students begin working towards a Trinity College grade exam in their second year. There are two types of exams music theory and music performance starting at Grade 1 and finishing at Grade 8.
