SWEENEYBRASS is the workshop and repair facility run by Scott Sweeney, musician and maker who grew up here in Cary, NC. 

Scott attended Dillard Drive Middle School, Athens Drive High School, and the North Carolina School of the Arts before moving to NYC to get a degree in bass trombone performance from the Manhattan School of Music. While there he was active as a musician with various groups - from rock bands to Broadway and Oompah bands to orchestras - there was never a shortage of performing. 

As a repairman, Scott worked in one of NYC's busiest shops and was lucky enough to be called upon by some of the greatest musicians the city had to offer. After nearly a decade, Scott has returned home and brought his workshop and craft with him. 

In addition to running the workshop, Scott has enjoyed performing with local groups like the North Carolina Symphony, the Durham Symphony Orchestra, the Raleigh Civic Symphony, the Triangle British Brass Band, and the Triangle Wind Ensemble.

Scott has served as a guest lecturer at numerous universities and high schools throughout the Triangle. He has taught masterclasses on instrument repair, maintenance and low brass performance. He is available for future group/or class engagements - please email for details.
