Transforming young lives through music

What is Just Brass

What is Just Brass

Just Brass is a program run by The Salvation Army in partnership with schools and communities to provide free brass music lessons to groups of children who have no other opportunity to participate in music lessons or bands. The program builds children's confidence, self esteem and abilities to thrive in school. Academic performances improve with the benefit of music.

The benefits of music

The benefits of music

Music has long been understood to have beneficial effects on the education and well being of young people.

The University of Melbourne is currently undertaking research to measure the affects Just Brass is having on children, families, schools and communities.

Donate an instrument

How you can help

Just Brass relies on donations to operate. When you donate an instrument or make an ongoing payment you are helping a child, who has few opportunities, to feel important, improve in their studies and become young leaders.

When a child chooses their new instrument they treasure it as an important gift.

One 8 year old girl said when she received a cornet "It is the most beautiful thing I own."
