What is a traditional Brass Band?

A brass band is composed of a number of different instruments ranging from the small and portable cornet to the very large and not so portable bass (tuba). Players sit in a particular configuration so that instruments playing similar parts are close together.

Some of the instruments featured in a Brass Band are rarely seen elsewhere, for example, the Baritone Horn.

The main instruments in the band are as follows:
