Study with Aubrey
Aubrey Foard began seriously teaching while studying as a graduate student at Rice University in Houston, Texas. While in Texas, Aubrey held a studio of 20 students from the Houston area, taught in the music preparatory program at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music and privately taught non-music majors at Rice. Aubrey currently serves as Lecturer of Tuba and Euphonium at UCLA.
Aubrey's students at UCLA have achieved numerous accomplishments, including winning fellowships to music festivals, performing with professional orchestras, performing on major motion picture soundtracks, and winning concerto competitions. As a brass faculty member, he coaches the UCLA Brass Ensemble, oversees the UCLA Tuba and Euphonium Ensemble, and presents recitals with the UCLA Faculty Brass Quintet. He has presented master classes and recitals worldwide, most recently at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore and at the Vietnam National Academy of Music in Hanoi.
Elsewhere, his students have performed with the Texas All-State Band, the California All-State Band, the SCSBOA All-Southern Band, the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra and have majored in music at a diverse number of schools, including the University of Houston, the University of Oregon, Northern Arizona University and the Eastman School of Music.
