Las Vegas Brass Lessons

Our Approach to Brass Lessons

Brill’s brass lessons are centered around three key elements: having fun while learning a new instrument, developing a strong foundation that sets students up for long term success, and completely personalized music instruction that helps students achieve their unique goals.

Have Fun With Brass Lessons

The sound of a brass instrument is so unique in the music world. It’s a fascinating instrument to learn to play and we believe that your lessons should align with that same idea. We strive to ensure that our students are engaged with and excited about their music lessons with the instructors at Brill Music Academy.

One way that we ensure a fun experience is facilitating lessons across musical styles and tastes. Whether you’re interested in learning a traditional adoption of a brass instrument or exploring a musical style that is more unique to you, we have a teacher at our school who can perfectly support those goals.

We Teach Proper Technique

Acquiring a skill like playing an instrument requires detail-oriented instruction that supports the foundation of your musical abilities. By adopting the proper technique for positioning, posture, mouth and lung engagement, and more, early on, you’ll be able to easily master more complicated and difficult techniques that will help you push your musical skill to the next level.

In addition to technique and application, our brass teachers are committed to providing a well-rounded and balanced music education, so they incorporate elements of music theory and music history into their lesson planning so that you have all the knowledge you need to become a successful musician.

Brass Lessons Personalized To You

Music lessons can only be fun if you’re learning about something that interests you. At Brill Music Academy, that’s our first priority: to understand what you want to learn and to accommodate those interests with personally tailored music instruction.

We operate on a student-driven model, allowing you to choose what your musical journey looks like. You’ll find unwavering support from our experienced teachers, guiding you every step of the way as you determine what kind of musician you’ll grow into.

Learning to play a brass instrument is a challenging yet rewarding endeavor. At our Las Vegas music school, we’re passionate about helping students find their sound through instruments. Our instructors are skilled at playing and teaching a great number of different brass instruments, allowing students to explore what interests them most. Through brass lessons, including the trumpet, french horn, and trombone, you can find passion in music and develop a craft that will last a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions About Brass Lessons

What is the minimum age to start brass lessons at Brill Music Academy?

At Brill Music Academy, we welcome students of all ages. Reading and comprehension capabilities are key indicators of a student’s readiness for learning to play the trumpet, trombone, or french horn. Once a student has begun to read and write, we find they are more successful when they explore the adoption of a musical instrument. Without these skills, music theory is challenging to grasp. 

Additionally, size and lung capacity will play into a students ability to learn a brass instrument. Our instructors recommend beginning lessons for brass instruments around age nine. IF you’re thinking about trying a new instrument, give us a call. Our instructors can help you find the perfect fit for your musical experience.

Do I need any prior experience?

A brass instrument like a trumpet or trombone is iconic. This can make beginning lessons a little intimidating. We’re here to reassure you! There’s nothing more fun than music lessons at Brill Music Academy. We welcome students of all skill levels to join our inclusive, personalized learning environment.

What styles of brass can I learn?

One of the most valuable things we can offer as a music school is experience. We bring teachers from around the globe to speak to all different kinds of music. With such diverse backgrounds in brass instruments, our teachers can support your exploration of any number of styles of music.

What materials will I need?

With personally customized lesson plans, every student will have unique materials to support their music education. Once you and your brass instructor have discussed your short and long term goals for music lessons, they will provide you with a complete list of tools, including books, online resources, and more.

Is a brass instrument the right fit for me?

Music is such a personal experience – so it’s important to find the right fit in school, teacher, and, most importantly, instrument. Our instructors at Brill Music Academy can help you determine what the perfect fit is for you.

  • I love the personal treatment we receive here.  I have never felt like my son is treated as just another student.  Fred and the instructors we have worked with are all very friendly and  patient.  We have been to a couple other music schools and this one is the best!

    Bryan K. | Parent
  • My daughter tried cello lessons here. I was very happy.  They answer the phone and they are polite and easy to deal with.  My daughter is different, so finding the right teacher for her has been challenging.

  • Great place! Our 12 year old looks forward to his lesson every week. As a parent, I especially appreciate the terrific organization and communication. Such is rare and invaluable with kids’ extracurricular activities and particularly music instructors or centers. Whether it’s scheduling, lesson feedback, payments or recitals, everything is concise, simple and accurate. Further, it’s very reasonable and convenient with plenty of parking! It’s also next to Domino’s Pizza!

  • My 11 year old son wanted to play saxophone in the band in middle school and started taking lessons at Brill last summer.  He absolutely loves his instructor and is excelling in band.  He is excited about mastering the instrument and continues to take lessons.

  • I would like to tell you how impressed I am w/Brill.  It’s run very professionally and the teachers are great.  I have learned so much studying w/Mark.  He sure knows his music and he is very professional.  So, all in all, Brill should get an A+.  I recommend it highly.  Thanks again.

  • We are so pleased with the progress our daughter has made since joining the Brill Music Academy earlier this year.  Our daughter looks forward to her lesson each week and has formed a strong bond with her teacher, Ms Debbie.  We are so thankful we found Brill Music and couldn’t be happier!

    Jennifer B. | Parent
  • The Brill Music Academy is a relaxed place where anyone can learn music.  They listen to the reasons you are there and want to help you achieve your goals.  My daughter was frustrated trying to learn at another music school in town.  She hated piano (even though she knew she could love it, and loves music).  It became a chore that she felt she would never master.  When we came to the Brill Academy I was afraid that my daughter would not do well, that we would argue and it would continue to be a struggle.  But I do not have to remind her to practice, she wants to play.  She gets excited about her lesson and she loves Liz.  They always come out of lessons smiling and laughing and with a positive outlook for next week.  I am so glad we found this school and music is once again a fun activity in our house.

    Stephanie W. | Parent
  • Kasey has passed his passion and love for music onto my son.  I cannot believe I don’t have to ‘tell him’ to practice. 🙂  He is always energized about what he has learned after a guitar lesson!

    Christine F. | Parent
  • Just wanted you to know we enjoyed Sarah’s first recital very much.  It was great hearing other students as well.  Thanks for the great job organizing.  I am happy Sarah is enjoying music.  Pam has been a great teacher as well.  See you soon!

    Karen P. | Parent
  • The Brill Music Academy has some of the most experienced music teachers in Las Vegas.  When my children first started playing music, they went through teachers at a couple of different schools.  While they were learning, it was obvious they weren’t understanding the reasoning behind the music or feeling the music, just the notes.  After moving to your academy, I noticed my children immediately became interested in music again and they started progressing at a much faster pace, in spite of having to relearn some of the “basics” they were never taught before.  Bravo to the teachers and staff at the Brill Music Academy.

    Holly D. | Parent
  • I am so pleased with the instruction my son is receiving from Bernard.  He is so patient with him.  He tailors the lesson for his age and communicates his progress with me after each lesson.  I am so glad we are sending him to Brill Music.

    Charlene M. | Parent
  • My children want to take lessons at the school where all of their friends go.

    Stacey C. | Parent
