Degrees of Brass offers an inventive and exciting program with an educational focus on music. Students will enjoy an exciting musical journey filled with activities, audience participation and more! Using music of all ages (Baroque to the Beatles, Music of Kids to Adults) making emotional and experiential connections is the goal. Students of all ages will interact with Q/A, demonstrations, fun antics, and especially become part of the performance. Degrees of Brass offers a variety of educational programs that promote student learning through the arts. The primary program involves introducing the brass family of instruments while covering other subjects such as, history, science, math, etc. Our other educational programs include; experiencing science with motion, sound, and astronomy; experience math through rhythm, form, statistics, and the experience economy; experience the subject of reading, writing, and interpretation; experience history through any period of history you are currently studying; and experience community, culture, and connecting with one another through the arts. Our performances connect directly to the North Carolina Standard course of study for general music K-5 curriculum.
