The Drum and Brass Directory

Are you looking for a teacher, musician, performer or wanting to put together a collaboration? Well you've come to the right place!

This is the place to find a music teacher, music group or collaboration partner.

Are you new to music-making? If so, this may be the most fulfilling step you ever take.


Private lessons or learning in a group? 

Whichever you choose, make sure you see clear policies on safeguarding, payment and equal opportunities.

Private lessons – the more expensive option. This is the more familiar route but it’s very important to find a teacher you get along with. And it can be lonely so you may want to play with a group as well.

Group learning – less emphasis on individual technique and more on playing together. Great social opportunity. You can always supplement group learning with private lessons.

Online learning – the cheapest option but the loneliest and you need lots of discipline. As a back up though, YouTube is your constant ally. The go-to place for inspiration and information! 


Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you want to play with others and enjoy the social side of music making? 
  • Do I need to let my teacher/group know that I will need some adjustments? 
  • Do I want to play a particular genre or style of music?
  • Do I have a clear idea of what instrument I want to play? 
  • Do I want to progress through grades?
  • Where do I have to go to learn?
  • It is accessible?
  • Will I feel welcome?

Many groups are actively looking for new members. Give them a call and ask some questions. Have a go before you commit and –  be prepared to be challenged musically!

Now you have thought about some of the options, dive into the directory and find the right teacher or group for you!
