Utilizing a resident faculty and a rotating roster of nationally and internationally recognized guest artists, the Fredericksburg Brass Institute fosters achievement and growth in its students while building community support for instrumental music. Guest Artists have included Rex Richardson, Phil Snedecor, Andrew Hitz, Matt Niess, The Army Brass Quintet, The USAF Brass Quintet, The Army Blues, among others. In my opinion, it currently stands as one of the highest quality brass institutes in the country at one of the most economical prices you'll ever find. Check them out and consider registering this summer or supporting!
