About Us


Our aim at The Brass Academy is to provide 
an outstanding environment in which children can learn and improve their playing while also having a great time.  We achieve this principally by selecting tutors and other staff who combine a high pedigree as performers together with a skilled and empathetic teaching style.  There is a warm and friendly atmosphere on our courses, where the hard-working but relaxed ethos gets the best out of all the children: and the afternoon sport and the evening activities really help the children make friends and enjoy themselves.

The Brass Academy is run by Tom Rainer (Music Director) and Ann Wight (Course Director).  The Brass Academy is the trading name of The Brass Academy Ltd, a company registered in England under Company Number 7766299.  Our registered office is at Abbotshay Cottage, Tanyard Lane, Ayot St Lawrence, Herts AL6 9BS.

We are now in our eighth year, and are looking forward in 2018 to our fifteenth course and to our 1,000th brass player coming through our doors!
