My name is Brad Howland, and I perform as Principal Trombone of the Victoria Symphony, along with my other work as a freelance musician. I started Music for Brass.com in 1998 with two goals in mind: 1. help brass musicians find great music for their gigs; 2. provide an educational resource for brass musicians, with articles by professional players.
We have published brass music online for over 20 years, and the catalog has grown to 600+ arrangements that can be immediately downloaded, printed, and played. We carefully inspect our arrangements before posting them, making sure they meet our standards of quality and "playability." Many have also been tested in performance before a variety of audiences.
It can be hard to know what you are going to get when buying music online, but we try to make this process as easy as possible by providing pdf samples, difficulty ratings, descriptions, recorded audio samples, or links to YouTube videos, SoundCloud, and iTunes.
In the catalog you'll see the instrumentation for each piece and an estimate of the difficulty level and range. For example:
We also offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. Please let us know if you are not 100% satisfied with your order and we will refund the full purchase price (we may ask you to sign and return a statement to us confirming that you deleted the downloaded files).
Our catalog is always growing. I hope you enjoy it and find it a useful source of music for brass. I invite you to explore the site, order some music, and have fun!
