Get Involved!

Blowcomotion is a Community Brass Band Learning Workshop. We welcome folks of all musical abilities.

We believe that you can always dust off that old tuba from high school, learn a new instrument, or pick up music for the first time entirely, even if you didn’t have that chance as a kid. Come to Blowcomotion to learn music or just to play! We welcome adult players of all skill levels, even total beginners.

Blowcomotion Rehearsals Resume in Person!

From March 2020 through the first half of 2021, we hosted weekly sectionals and practice using BandLab and Zoom. Now, we are meeting in person again! We meet as a whole band every Tuesday in Shipe Park. We ask that anyone attending rehearsals be fully vaccinated (2 weeks after your second vaccine dose or your booster dose if you are eligible). 

Meet some of our instructors!
