As a brass player studying at NEC you have chosen to work with one of the world’s most distinguished music faculties. Our brass faculty represent a broad range of professional experience, as soloists, in chamber music, or as orchestra players for the world-renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra. Virtually the entire BSO brass section teach at NEC, and an annual Brass Bash concert in NEC's Jordan Hall celebrates this connection.
At the core of your studies is studio instruction. Your studio work is put into practice with performance opportunities in studio class, recitals, chamber music, and orchestra ensembles. Course work in music history and theory gives depth and understanding to your performance repertoire. The liberal arts curriculum is an opportunity to study major academic disciplines as well as cultural, social, intellectual, and political contexts for music.
