Marching Brass

Marching Brass Marching brass instruments are brass instruments specially designed to be played while moving.

Marching band instruments in the brass family include trumpets, mellophones, tenor trombones, bass trombones, euphoniums and sousaphones. Bands will often add other instruments, such as cornets or French horns, to supplement or replace the more common ones.

Common woodwind instruments in a marching band include Bb clarinets, alto saxophones, tenor saxophones, flutes and piccolos. Eb clarinets, baritone saxophones, oboes and bassoons can also feature occasionally in marching bands.
