Our Mission


The mission of the Tidewater Brass Institute is to connect students of all skill levels with renowned brass performers and educators through a combination of daily instruction and concert experiences at an accessible price.

Our History


TideBrass is entering it's 3rd year. Both founders, Dakota Corbliss and Buddy Deshler, see the rich potential for music making in the Tidewater area, and want to be able to bring in renowned performers from all over the country to educate and coach the young musicians of the region. 

Our Vision


We believe that the cost of an education should not dictate its value. Our goal is to provide an experience unlike any other at a price well below the industry standard. Come find out for yourself why so many of our participants keep coming back!
