The 2017 International Brass Band Summer School has announced that it will once again host delegates from around the world at the University of Swansea from the 30th July — 5th August.
The course has grown into the biggest of its kind and offers a unique opportunity for delegates to work alongside many of the finest brass musicians — led by Black Dyke Director of Music, Prof Nicholas Childs.
As usual there is a superb mix of fun to go alongside the musical education, with a holiday atmosphere that combines great teaching, rehearsing and tutoring alongside activities, interests and relaxation.
World class tutors
The line-up of 2017 tutors includes Richard Marshall, Tom Hutchinson and Chris Turner looking after the cornets, Owen Farr leading the horns, Gary Curtin and David Thornton taking care of the euphs and baritones, Brett Baker with the trombones and Joseph Cook and Matt Routley making sure the tubas are kept in order! Matt Whitfield and Simon Oliver will help with all the exotic stuff at the back of the band with the team of eager percussionists.
There will also be the regular visitors from different parts of the banding community too — with a few more added attractions on offer to help banding skill sets.
The course also offers individual en-suite accommodation, breakfast and three course evening meal
