Help support music education in Baton Rouge by contributing to our crowd-funding campaign. The new facility will include a professional recording studio and performance venue so that we can provide a more all-inclusive music industry education! We have worked REALLY HARD to secure most of the funds needed, but we need $50,000 more to realize our dream! Of that $50,000 we’ve already raised over $12,000. Please contribute and share our campaign link with everyone you know!
Wow, thank you so much, Jive Flamingo, for including us in your birthday blog! We are honored to support you in whatever ways we can, and we thank you for your support as well!
Come out and support the private and group students as they perform for the 1st time this year at Mellow Mushroom!
This is a free event, but feel free to bring money to eat and drink if you wish!

BRMS is excited to welcome our new Brass Instructor, Nick Garrison, to the team! Nick will be teaching some exciting classes that are going to add an element of wind instrument education that has never been done here at BRMS. Along with private lessons, Nick will be teaching two group classes that he designed around the music scene in Southern Louisiana. The first class is Beginning Improvisation for all ages. With an emphasis on playing by ear, this class is focused on classic New Orleans tunes, Jazz and Blues Standards, and common New Orleans Brass Band tunes. The second class is focused on learning the horn lines used in Popular Music. This is designed to teach horn players commonly requested repertoire in the cover band scene, and how to act professionally on the gig. The students in these classes will get performance opportunities in Spring Semester 2014. The third class is a Brass Basics Class for Brass Instruments only. It will be a great opportunity to play some chorales or brass quartets/quintets. This class would emphasize listening to great musicians who demonstrate clear musical ideas, technical ability, and cooperation with other musicians.
*The Improvisation and Popular Music classes are not restricted to Brass Instruments only. The class is also open to Alto, Tenor and Bari Saxophones. Please spread the word to saxophone students so that Nick can create an awesome horn section to perform with our Young Bands!
Classes will be scheduled on Monday and Tuesdays. We are currently working out times.
