PEOPLE provides data about people related to trumpet and brass pedagogy. This information includes dates, instruments played, teachers and students and tags (e.g.: "instrument makers") helping to draw connections between related people. DataBrass also points to authorities like VIAF and WikiData that provide linked data about individuals, pointing to even more resources and ensuring we identify the correct individual. Finally, DataBrass provides helpful links to useful websites like homepages, biographies and wikipedia pages.

DataBrass does not house copyrighted source materials, but instead we keep a record of works (methods, etudes, articles, theses, books and pedagogical recordings). These works connect to their creators and contributors on the site as well as to other works through thematic tags. This makes the site a powerful tool for researchers, who can find large amounts of information about a given person or topic.
