    Can anyone advise a "big name" cornet player who'd be good for a cornet workshop weekend? Someone who's good at dealing with mere mortals.

    I'd echo the view of MusicMan - Alan Morrison is great to work with and has lots of experience of giving workshops and helping younger players.

    I attended a day workshop with Alan recently. He knows his stuff, but by the end of a day I was bored and hadn't blown enough.

    Roger Webster took the SCABA workshop last Nov (or maybe the year before?) and was excellent - communicated well with the guinea pigs, made sense, and kept everyone interested.

    Please note these are my own personal opinions only.

    Obviously I'm biased when i say this but I dont think anyone could beat our MD Ian Porthouse. Not saying the others aren't very good as well but Ian is cornet tutor at NYBBGB, and has a tremendous ammount of knowledge to share, regardless of their standard.
    Let me know if you need contact details.

    Any of the names mentioned are fine. If you can catch a weekend when John Hudson can come over from Norway, he is excellent and very experienced in dealing with younger player. Also, a legend who has also spent a great deal of years teaching is James Shepherd. He can really relate to younger ones. Stuart Lingard from YBS is also a good bet. These players are used to coaching. I know YBS Principals regularly coach other bands.

    Russell Gray is also excellent, he has worked with many young players here and in Norway. He also used to teach me.

    Good luck.
