Euphonium and Baritone

The euphonium and baritone are lovely, soulful, instruments with a warm, singing sound. ‘Euphonium’ actually means ‘sweet voice’ in Greek! They’re both instruments that you cuddle in front of you and the bell of the instrument sends the sound upwards.

They’re an essential part of a brass band, with the baritone sounding just a little lower than the euphonium. There aren’t many famous euphonium players, and the instrument really suits musicians who want a satisfying, beautiful sound, but aren’t too worried about being at the front of the stage.

We teach the euphonium and baritone in schools across the borough and at Newham Music Academy, our after-school and Saturday music centre. To enquire about lessons please email or call us on 020 3598 6260.
