Amy Larsen

Amy Larsen is the Bass Section Leader. She also plays Bb Bass with the Benfield Brass Band out of Annapolis, MD.  She has been a tuba player since she was in the 4th grade in 1990 when she knew she wanted to play the “biggest one.”  Amy has played previously with several bands in Maryland including the Maryland Band Director’s Band, the Montgomery College Wind Ensemble, and the Rockville Concert Band.  After graduating from Montgomery County (MD) Public Schools (MCPS), she attended the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and trained under Wesley Jacobs for a short time.  Professionally, Amy is a Science Teacher and Department Chair in an MCPS Middle School.  She has taught at 3 different middle schools and one high school within MCPS covering Earth and Space Science, Physical Science, Environmental Science, and Engineering.  Music is Amy’s passion outside of work. She considers her bandsmen, especially the basses/tuba section as family.  Amy is a proud Mom of two, a proficient soccer goalie, and married to a high brass player who consistently supports their shared brass life.
