Building a career in music can be challenging, and it takes much more than just learning how to play an instrument. The UW-Madison Brass Quintet brings master’s brass classes to high schools throughout the Midwest, inspiring students to take the leap and build their musical careers.
Due to budget constraints, urban public schools often miss out on these important opportunities to connect with and learn from professional musicians. Chops recently sponsored master’s brass classes for our friends at Minneapolis South and Edison High Schools. The Brass Quintet offered interactive performances at each school, followed by a live Q&A. Students learned about reciprocal tuition at UW schools for Minnesota residents, and the many undergraduate opportunities available at the UW-Madison Mead Witter School of Music.
