Expanded conductors’ workshops in Scotland
Following the success of the previous three years, there will three different two-day workshops running concurrently over the weekend: The Advanced Conductors’ Workshops led by Russell Gray with Coalburn Silver Band; the Youth Band Conductors’ Workshops led by Gareth Bowman with Coalburn Bronze Band; and the Less Experienced and New Conductors’ Workshops led by Nigel Boddice MBE, also with Coalburn Bronze Band. The three courses will take place on Saturday and Sunday 5 April and 6 April at the SBBA Offices, 12 Fairbairn Road, Livingston. EH54 6TS. Both days start at 10.00am and finish at 5.00pm. In a positive reaction to the constructive feedback from previous years, the 2014 Advanced Conductors’ Workshops will concentrate on the many ‘day to day practicalities’ of conducting a brass band, such as accompanying a soloist, conducting hymn tunes well, preparing a band for a concert and preparing a band for a contest, as well a variety of other techniques of great value to the more advanced brass band conductors. The Youth Band Conductors’ Workshops will focus on aspects of training, repertoire and motivation for youth bands of all levels and ages, and the Less Experienced and New Conductors’ Workshops will address baton technique, and offer conducting tips and advice for new and inexperienced brass band conductors.
All three workshops conclude on Sunday 6 April with a short open rehearsal from 4.00pm to 5.00pm, and members of the public are welcome to attend for a nominal entry fee of £3. Due to the tailored, ‘hands-on’ nature of the weekend, available spaces are limited in numbers, so SBBA recommends that you register your place as soon as possible by contacting Andrew Duncan, Development Manager, Scottish Brass Band Association (email@example.com) The fees for the three courses are: £80.00 for the Advanced Conductors’ Workshops; £40.00 for the Youth Band Conductors’ Workshops; and £40.00 for the Less Experienced and New Conductors’ Workshops. Fees include refreshments and a buffet lunch both days. To reserve a place contact Andrew Duncan by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
