Join us and your professional tutor, Dr. Brett Baker (Black Dyke Brass Band, UK) for a week of English Brass Banding, fun and entertainment in the city that never sleeps!

The course package includes an optional hotel room (for 1 or 2 people at just £151 for the 5 nights and includes resort fees, local taxes and charges) 14 hours of full band tuition, 9 – 12 hours of sectional tuition, an end of course concert which is in front of the public, an after party with an open bar, and of course plenty of time to explore Las Vegas, The hotel we have chosen for the brass band week is the family friendly “Circus Circus” which is directly on the famous Las Vegas strip and is officially a 3 star hotel. It is a cheaper hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. You are of course welcome to book your own hotel somewhere else in Las Vegas. You can view the Circus Circus web page HERE.

Grand Canyon South Rim
The Grand Canyon – Horseshoe Bend

You can arrive at Circus Circus from 3pm on Sunday 23rd October and you will be met at the check-in lobby by one of our lovely team (between 3pm and 11pm), and enjoy an evening in Las Vegas or just relax in the hotel watching the free circus acts, gambling, eating, drinking, visit the Adventuredome or play classic carnival games at Midway! The course begins on the morning of Monday 24th and the rehearsal facilities are located right in the hotel. Hotel departures are at 11am on Friday 28th October (these dates can be extended on either end at a small additional cost, just ask us to get a price for the dates you would like). If you are going to extend your stay in the USA and visit the Grand Canyon (not too far away!) please let us know and we will put you in touch with great suppliers of rental cars, road or air tours to the “big hole in the ground”!

Las Vegas, Nevada.

We will send you a full list of free attractions in Las Vegas before you depart, so you can make sure you get to see the famous Bellagio fountains & conservatory, the Mirage volcano (unless they remove it before you get there), the wildlife habitat at Flamingo, The Pyramid at Luxor, St Marks Square and the canals at the Venetian, The Eiffel tower at Paris and so much more – all for free! Zilch. Nowt. Nada. Nothing!

Please read before booking!

The course rates listed on the shop page that include hotel are for 1 person on the course, and 1 or 2 people sharing the hotel room. If you wish to add a 3rd or 4th person (non participating) onto the room, there is an additional charge from the hotel of £99 per person, for the whole 5 nights, and all of the prices are inclusive of all resort fees, hotel booking fees and taxes. Just let us know in the comments box when you order if you wish to add a 3rd or 4th person to the room booking.

Circus Circus Hotel

If you are sharing a room with another course participant, then we can offer the second person in the room a discounted course fee of just £599 (making the course and hotel for you both just £749 each). Please book the second person under their instrument (at the same time) and select the DEPOSIT option – you can leave any other requests or questions in the comments area of the booking form. We will then organise the combination of the two course fees and hotel (£1498) between you both and invoice you each for half of the remaining balance. If one person drops out, the other person will be liable for the original £899 course and hotel fee.

Monthly payments are an option – the balance will be split into equal payments due on the 1st of each month with the final payment being due on the 1st October 2022. For example; if you book on the 2nd March 2022 and pay the deposit (£99), the balance (£800) will be split into 7 equal payments of £114.29 due on the 1st April, 1st May, 1st June, 1st July, 1st August, 1st September and the last payment of £114.26 due on the 1st October 2022. This is not credit, so there are no credit checks or searches, and everyone is accepted. There are no additional fees, interest or charges for this service.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We welcome and encourage young people to take part in all of our events around the world, however due to legal restrictions in the USA anyone under 21 years of age (on the 23rd October 2022) must be accompanied by someone over the age of 21. We are unfortunately unable to book hotel rooms for unaccompanied under 21’s. The accompanying “adult” does not have to be a participant of the course, however will need to be responsible for the under 21 guest throughout. Please also remember that the legal age to gamble and drink in the US is 21. Under 21 year olds are not allowed in gaming areas of casinos or in bars, and will be unable to purchase alcohol or tobacco products anywhere, including supermarkets and petrol stations.

If you wish to attend and are under 21, we are able to offer a reduction in the overall price. Just let us know.
