About Blowcomotion

Blowcomotion is a Community Brass Band and Adult Learning Workshop. We welcome adults of all musical abilities.

Kids have multiple opportunities to learn to play brass and percussion in school. What about adults? Come to Blowcomotion to learn music or just to play! We welcome adult players of all skill levels, even total beginners.

Rehearsals will be at Sunset Valley Elementary School [map] in South Austin during the long, cold winter nights.

Join Our Weekly Workshop

Come to a weekly workshop to see what we are all about!

  • Do you already play an instrument and want more brassy fun?
  • Did you put down your horn when you left school?
  • Have you never played an instrument before but want to learn?
  • Did you go to HONK!TX and wish you could do that?

Come play and learn with us!

The weekly Blowcomotion workshop is where the magic happens. The first hour is a section workshop led by teachers. The second hour we all come together as a band. All levels of experience are welcome!

We will take your contact information and add you to the email list. Bring your instrument or drum if you want to play.

Follow Blowcomotion on FaceBook for schedule and location updates.
