OUTREACH AND SERVICES
Arts Education is a huge portion of what we share in both our performances and the classroom. Knowledge is power, and it would be a shame not to share our experiences and learning with others! Everyone of all ages are welcome to participate and learn with us. The knowledge that we bring to the table encourages further learning of their craft, and can be transferable to different aspect of their life. From Masterclasses to School Performances, Bent Brass can offer a wide range of learning for all.
These classes are geared towards the help of performances of an ensemble, big or small, to achieve their fullest potential. Here the music director/ chamber ensemble will be able to play three their chosen works, or music equalling to 30-45 minutes of repertoire. Our main focus in these classes will focus towards flow of sound, technique requirements of said instruments, differences in playing as a soloist versus in an ensemble, and overall professionalism as a musician. Q&A periods are also included so please feel free to ask as many questions as possible. We are here for your benefit!
These classes are approximately 1 - 1.5 hours long.
The following are designed for specific topics of conversation that range over a variety of topics. Please see below for the lectures available:
Performance Anxiety and How to Perform for Others
The Art of Conducting
Performance Injuries and How to Prevent them
Brass Instrument Maintenance
All lectures include classroom participation and Q&A periods.
These Lectures are Approximately 30 mins - 1 hour long.
Performances help allow us to put all of our Masterwork and Lecture Discussions to good use! Here we will be able to demonstrate music over history, and how much it has changed! This will include looks into modern repertoire and even todays top charts! Music was never meant to stay in one place, it evolves with new technologies, styles, and ideas created by you! This recital is meant to engage the audience members and influence further practice within the growing minds of musicians.
This recital is approximately 45 mins - 1 hour long.
