Winds & Brass Dept. Masterclasses for 2016-2017

All students registered for studio instruction or group instrumental instruction in the VCM’s Winds & Brass Department, have the opportunity to perform in our Winds and Brass Performance Masterclasses.  Led by a variety of VCM winds & brass faculty, including the department head, and occasional visiting guest artists, performance masterclasses offer students an excellent opportunity to reinforce and further develop all aspects of learning, as well as be exposed to additional repertoire.  We encourage students of all ages and levels to participate.  Our masterclasses are friendly and welcoming and we are proud of our thriving community of students.  Students are also encouraged to audit masterclass on weeks they are not performing.

To sign up to perform, please email Emily Nagelbach, Head of the Winds & Brass Department at emily.nagelbach@gmail.com with your repertoire and the date you would like to play. Non-VCM students may participate where space permits, and for at $15.00 fee.
