Brass

Tutor: Rob Harper

Building on the work done by last year's workshop we will address more challenging music in 2020. Alan Fernie and Robert Ramskill, both prolific composers and arrangers for brass ensembles will be the music we hope to study.

The final choice of music will give priority to improvement of the playing of students including production of tone, intonation and reading skills.

The development of the essentials of the intensity of the diaphragm, minimum lip pressure a free flowing air stream and proper placement of the tongue will be an essential part of each session.
