Kevin Fenske ,

Great podcast!

Really enjoy listening to Andy, Lance, and the guests they bring onto the podcast. Thanks for putting this together and for the many laughs!

Get your Bachelors in a Podcast

I know why the Mary Pappert School of Music has to buy ad space every episode. Without it these guys would be stealing their students. Jokes and stories that’ll make you laugh and trumpet players scowl.

RyallBA ,

Equally informative and entertaining!

This is a fantastic podcast featuring some of the greatest people and personalities in the brass world! The Brass Junkies consistently strikes a fine balance between substantial pedagogical, musical, and life advice while simultaneously being full of heart and humor. Thank you Andrew and Lance for providing us with such a great resource for equal parts learning and laughs!
