intro to brass

Former UW Madison doctoral student, Will Porter, has a passion that he likes to share with others, and he has been working with the Bubbler to engage Madison teenagers in an introductory course on the history of brass instruments around the world, followed by a hands-on lesson that culminates in the full group playing a simple tune together.

WATCH: One class split up into guys and girls groups, and the girls came at it with synchronizing sound and movements!

 

 

The purchase of the instruments was made possible through a Phi Kappa Phi Literacy Grant.
