Devon Youth Chamber Brass

Welcome to the website of Devon Youth Chamber brass, a new initiative devised by trumpet player, brass educator and composer Sam Massey.

Supported by the Devon & Torbay Music Education Hub, we aim to provide remote and face-to-face chamber brass ensemble opportunities for young intermediate to advanced brass players across the county.

Online & face-to-face brass workshops

Gathering Day – Face to Face! 21st November 2021

We are pleased to announce that we are looking to hold our first Devon Youth Chamber Brass Gathering Day on Sunday 21st November at King Edward VI Community College, Ashburton Road, Totnes, TQ9 5JX. 

We are proposing to run from 2pm-4:30pm with a short break. We will be exploring mid-sized brass repertoire including those pieces above, but also other smaller brass ensemble pieces, encouraging more senior students to form quartets and quintets and work in sectionals in a leadership role with the more junior players.

This is suitable for approximately Grade 4+ brass players of all types and clefs.

The cost for the 2.5 hour session will be £12, but if you would like to sign up as an annual member for the year, including all seven gathering days and other special projects, the cost is £70 inclusive.

All students that receive pupil premium or free school meals will be able to attend free of charge, and a number of bursary places are available to those for whom finance is a barrier to attendance – please contact me in confidence to apply for a bursary place.
