Welcome students and families!
My name is Mrs. Bruss (like Brussels Sprout) and I am the band teacher at BES and BMS! I am so thrilled to join this school community, and I can’t wait to make music together!
I am originally from New York, and I graduated from The Crane School of Music. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music education with a concentration in special education. I am beginning my seventh year of teaching at BES and BMS.
I started playing the flute in 4th grade, and never stopped! I was inspired by my elementary band teacher, and I look forward to sharing music together!
In my free time I enjoy playing the flute, eating ice cream, hiking, yoga, and travelling all over the world.
Teaching elementary band is my passion, and I look forward to this exciting year ahead!
