Private instruction is the foundation of a sound musical education. At Washington Brass Institute, the depth and expertise of our faculty assure a great match for our students’ individual needs. Private lessons of 30, 45, and 60 minutes are offered for students of all levels (including beginners!) on trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, baritone and tuba.

A unique feature of our private lesson program is that it includes the opportunity to participate in workshops, recitals, evaluations, and our annual concerto competition, which give every student valuable performance experience and feedback from a variety of teachers.

Prospective brass students take a placement with Brass Department Chair Ken Wolff, who will advise each student regarding an appropriate studio teacher placement and path of study. Private lessons can begin at any time during the school year. Get more information and schedule a placement by contacting WBI through the form listed below.
