Join us for a great week of making music! 

Brass Camp is a collaboration between the Puget Sound Community Music Department and Metro Parks. It offers an exciting, noncompetitive environment for players of varying abilities to study with highly qualified university-affiliated faculty in a university setting. 

The weeklong camp happens on the college campus during the summer and offers students the chance to improve their skills, perform new works, and interact with peers who share an interest in music. Students are placed in small groups and larger ensembles to play music in various styles, including jazz improvisation. Master classes will focus on building technique, using proper breath support, warm-up methods, practice techniques, and intonation. The camp culminates in a final performance, where students show off all they've learned.
