Brass and Woodwind Lessons

Brass and Woodwind Lessons at Blue Sky Music Studios

So you're in the school band and you want to move up to first chair and improve your NYSSMA score.  Or you have to send in a recording to supplement your college application, and need to prepare a specific piece of music.  Perhaps you're an adult who played in your younger years and would like to pick it up again, and even get good enough to play some local gigs with a band.  Maybe you know how to read, but don’t have a clue when it comes to soloing over chord changes.  Does your embouchure need work?  Your reading chops?  Whatever your goal, our experienced brass and woodwind teachers can assist you in obtaining it!  We offer lessons on flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone horn, french horn, tuba, as well as recorder, bugle among other instruments.

Brass and Woodwind Lessons Offered:

While trumpet lessons and trombone lessons are the most popular among brass instruments, we also offer baritone lessons, french horn lessons, tuba lessons and even bugle lessons!  For woodwinds we offer flute lessons, clarinet lessons, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone lessons, and even recorder lessons!  Need an instrument?  We rent wind instruments in our music store.  For more information, visit our rental page.

​Any Age, Any Level!

Our woodwind and brass instructors enjoy sharing their knowledge with others!   Whether a beginner learning how to blow their first note, an advanced student trying to get to that next level or an adult just revisiting an old passion, we're here to help you along.  We teach children as young as 8 years old right up to retired adults.

​Learn to Play the Styles that YOU Enjoy!

Would you like to be able to read and perform Flute concerto No. 1 in G Major by Mozart, or would you like to have a try at something more along the lines of Jethro Tull?  Or what about learning how to be part of a punchy horn section like Tower of Power, or being a main soloist in a blues band such as in this version of Sweet Home Chicago?   Of course everyone has to learn the basics such as embouchure, fingerings, tone and reading, but wouldn’t it benefit to you be working toward the goal of playing music that you enjoy?  Our music instructors will work with you to get you where you want to go, focusing on giving you both a solid foundation and applying what you learn to the style of music that you prefer and enjoy.
