    Calling on the power of tMP :) ....

    As part of a project we are running to develop our Training Section, Woodbridge Excelsior would like to organise a weekend workshop sometime between now and Christmas 2010, specifically for our Training Section, and we'd like to round off the weekend with an evening concert at which our workshop leader will be a star guest soloist with the main band (this will also be a free concert, for the local community).

    This is where tMP comes in; we would appreciate hearing from anyone interested in leading the workshop (and there will be a fee available) or from anyone who could give us useful contacts.

    I'm happy to receive responses in this thread, or via PM, and will take them to our committee for consideration.

    Thanks in advance...

    Would highly recommend Steven Mead. Did workshop for YHBBA with over 100 students. Did excellent job. Good communicator. Students had great time and he would obviously be a star guest for your concert. He has his own website for contact details. :tup

    Brett Baker is excellent (with or without White River Brass). He's great with kids as well as adults, and at any level of ability.
    Good luck with it, sounds like a great scheme for your training band...and for the future of your main band.

    Philip Harper is absolutely fantastic with workshops and would be great with the kids! He is also a very talented horn player too...

    You beat me to it! Les is awesome-a really interesting masterclass, and a brilliant player.

    I can recommend Les too, he's done some excellent work with Dalmellington band up here in Scotland. Maybe a bit further afield but Alan Fernie is an excellent band trainer and has a long history of working with training bands at all levels. He's on here and is a very approachable guy.

    There are many people who would do a great job, but if I were to suggest a name, it would have to be two; either Steve Sykes or Alan Morrison. Both are talented world class musicians, are eminently knowledgeable, entertaining, and both have super people skills.
