Brass Ensembles

pBuzz

The brightly coloured pBuzz is a perfect introduction to any brass instrument. It has been designed especially for young musicians’ hands with its smooth edges, larger mouthpiece and light weight; they can enjoy making music straight away.

For students in Years 1 or 2 who are thinking of learning a brass instrument in Year 3 it is the perfect opportunity to have a try to see if it’s for them. 

Kids will learn the very basics of brass playing and also basic skills in music reading. pBuzz will encourage their creativity, build their confidence in producing a sound and begin to nurture their natural musical talents, all while having great fun.

Course runs for 2 terms.
