Minneapolis School of Brass has developed a specific curriculum for trumpet, trombone and euphonium. The "Parke Method for the Young Virtuoso" is a comprehensive 3-part series of method books intended to systematically introduce the fundamentals of music. Each book consists of warm-ups, lip slurs, method (introducing new fundamentals for the chapter), etudes, technical exercises, and repertoire. Each book takes approximately 2 years to successfully complete.
Minneapolis School of Brass charges a flat monthly rate. Over the course of the session this will equal out to 4 lessons per month.
Lessons are normally once a week for 30 minutes. More advanced students may wish to take weekly 45 minute or 1 hour lessons.
Missed lessons may be made up as time allows if 24 hour notice is given of the absence (exceptions are made for illness or family emergencies such as a death in the family). Invoices are sent out each month along with a student grade report.
