    Yes there is. It's on the first weekend in April. Adults only. The price is £35 this includes bed, board and all tuition which is provided by White City Brass. You can actually pay on the day of arrival. Stan is going along with Rob Vallance. Anyone who wants to go needs to contact Len Old via the Durham Brass Band Trust as soon as possible so he can confirm numbers

    It is for people 18 & over only. This is on the grounds that the Durham Brass Band Trust already provides workshops ect. for junior players but nothing is organised for senior players. As has already been stated the courses run once a year at Durham University. It is a 2 day residential course. Tuition is provided by White River Brass (a 5 piece from Black Dyke) and the weekend culminates in a gala concert. Considering all bed, board and tuition is included in the price I think for £35 it's superb value. You can actually turn up and pay on the day but you MUST notify Len Old at the trust that you intend to turn up so he can organise numbers ect.

    There are quite a few Summer Schools for players. No age limit.

    I would love to go on a residential course but the info never seems to reach my school about brass band courses. :(
    If anyone knows of any in the summer (now is not good for me as i'm too busy at school) then could you let me know please,
    Thanks!
