    Laura - sounds like an excellent idea, is it aimed at younger players or us who are slightly longer in the tooth nowadays?

    As it says on the 1st post, brass players under 18 are welcome to attend ;-)

    The tutors we have are Bruce Fraser (who is also writing a piece to be performed during the course), Tina Mortimer, Jillian Dixon and Keith Norris.

    We are expecting a decent turn out so should be good fun for all concerned. And it's free!!! :) :)

    How qualified are you???!!!
    It's not qualifications which are important in teaching beginners/youngsters anyway! Whats important is the ability to inspire enthusiasm and ambition, to give confidence. All the best Laura.
