Hello! My name is Dan Blevins.


Many young musicians struggle to get better on their own. Innovative Brass gives students a plan to follow so they get better faster and feel confident playing their instrument.

Since the start of Innovative Brass in 2017, I've been able to help students through great teaching and caring for their progress so they have fun and get better.

When I'm not teaching I love to sit on the couch in comfy clothes, eat Moose Tracks, and plan trips to national parks with my wife.

Individual Lessons

Who should take individual lessons?

  • Individual lessons are for any student! However most individual lesson students are either just beginning, or are very advanced.

How will I know if I should take individual lessons?

  • After your introductory lesson, the instructor will let you know what plan would work best for you and your needs. 

Online Lessons

  • How do online lessons work?

    • Simple! You download an app on your phone/tablet/computer​, put in a number and boom! You're ready for your lesson.

  • Do I need a fast internet connection?

    • Nope! ​For a steady connection you'll need roughly 5mbps. Most internet connections are way faster than this. You can check your internet connection at https://www.speedtest.net/
