Globetrotting virtuoso Brett Baker will be on hand to lend his expertise to the trombones, whilst the tubas will come under the eye of Joseph Cook.

Brilliant combination

The new euphonium tutors for the 2014 course will be a brilliant combination of black and purple, as Black Dyke’s Gary Curtin is joined by Brighouse & Rastrick’s David Thornton.
