Marching band and school orchestras are often the first place where budding trumpeters, trombonists, tuba and French Horn players get their start. From there, players can march down a wide variety of avenues, from Broadway orchestras in New York City to New Orleans brass bands marching down the streets of the French Quarter.
Punk rock, Jazz and let’s not forget Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk, have all benefited from a vibrant horn section.
Bring your horn and West Side Music Academy will match you with a teacher and a program to make your music shine.
