What Colleges Say...

Brass Grooves is a terrific addition to the existing (but perhaps rather stale) brass quintet repertoire. This creative collection is a great way to introduce, develop and enhance a variety of styles that aspiring musicians will no doubt encounter in their musical future. It also brings back the concept of FUN for the students and teachers alike.
Highly recommended!

We have over 500 pieces of quintet music, but nothing like Brass Grooves! We had so much fun reading the charts…couldn’t wait to get to the next one.  The music can be played by good high school students, but college students and professionals will also enjoy these works. Brass Grooves will be great for school concerts, receptions, and as audience-pleasing tunes on recitals.  Thank you, Dallas Brass!!

Dallas Brass may have intended this for high schools, but it is invaluable for college students, too.  An excellent tool to teach young brass players different styles and feels, and get them involved in small ensemble playing at the same time. Highly recommended!

Brass Grooves is a refreshing addition to our repertoire.  These tunes will be perfect for our faculty quintet programs at high schools!
