Are we the right brass studio for you?

Since 1979, Bruce Haag has taught over 2,000 brass players. His students come locally from the Cincinnati area and from all over the world via Skype. While you are here researching the best brass studio for you, please consider the benefits of becoming a student at Bruce Haag Brass Studios and find out why we are the best choice for brass instruction.


1. Convenience

We are centrally located in Cincinnati near Ronald Reagan Highway and Winton Road, or available world-wide via live Skype video.

2. Qualification

Bruce Haag has had an extensive career as a trumpet player and brass teacher. He draws upon years of experience with Stan Kenton, Elvis Presley, top Las Vegas show orchestras, and orchestras in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Bruce is a Claude Gordon Certified Brass Teacher. Bruce knew Claude for 25 years and actively studied with him for 15 years. Mr. Gordon is considered by many professionals to be the world’s foremost brass authority and pedagogue. In his later years, when teaching became difficult for him, Mr. Gordon would personally refer many students directly to Bruce. Claude and Bruce taught from the same studio in Saratoga, California for many years.

3. Personalization

Each lesson is tailored to fit your ability level and musical goals. There is no “one size fits all.” All ability levels and ages are welcome, from beginner to pro. Bruce has many adult students who are “come-back” players. Classical, jazz, swing, rock, pop, gospel styles are taught.

Bruce is dedicated to learning about your personal musical goals and helping you to achieve them.

On your very first lesson Bruce will identify what you are doing wrong and begin to remedy these issues. He will help you to clear all the physical and mental roadblocks that are holding you back.

4. The Claude Gordon Method

The Claude Gordon method will take the mystery and frustration out of brass playing for both the amateur and the professional.  You will learn how to play correctly, utilizing the seven natural elements of brass playing: the Wind Power, the Tongue, the Wind Control, the Lips, the Muscles of the Lips and Face, the Fingers of the Right Hand, the Left Hand. You will learn to use these in a natural manner, the way they were meant to work, within the forces of nature.  When you play your instrument easily, then you make great music!

5. A wide range of lesson times available, 6 days a week, sure to fit any schedule!

Monday-Friday  9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Saturdays  9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
