We @ ODB passionately believe in helping and inspiring the next generation of Old Dirty Brasstards (or as we like to call ‘em: ‘Young Clean Brasstards’!). In addition to their performing work, all members of ODB are experienced teachers, working with in a variety of educational settings including Junior Trinity Laban, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Drum Tech, The Education Group and a host of primary and secondary schools.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day ODB spent down here and the pupils were buzzing about for quite a time afterwards!

Our education projects are flexible and tailored to the environment, scale and pupil level of each institution. The aim of an ODB education project is to learn important musical skills such as performance technique, intonation, ensemble playing and sight reading whilst playing alongside the ODB lineup (using simplified charts according to ability) and having lots of fun!

If you fancy getting your tweed on and bringing London’s finest drum n’ brass experience to your place of learning, give us a shout on the ‘comments’ page!
