Welcome to my website! My name is Mrs. Bruss (like Brussels Sprout) and I am the band teacher at BES and BMS! I teach small group lessons to 4th and 5th grade students, and lead large ensemble rehearsals at each school. This is my second year in the BBRSD. 

I have been in love with music for as long as I can remember. I started playing the flute in 4th grade, and never stopped! I look forward to making music together!
