Each student has the opportunity to study individually with an applied teacher on his/her instrument and to participate in individual master classes. There are many outstanding performance opportunities for brass students. Visiting artists also enrich the study program for brass area students. The Madison Brass Quintet in residence at JMU, performs music from all periods for brass instruments. In addition to on-campus concerts, the group has performed in public schools throughout the mid-Atlantic region and been a featured ensemble at several brass symposiums.
