Simon Cowen
  Simon Cowen will be leading the trombone masterclass at the Wingates bandroom.

There are just a few places left for the forthcoming Brass Toff Trombone Workshop led by Elliott Brass Artist, Simon Cowen.

The Principal Trombone of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra will be leading the event at the Wingates bandroom in Westhoughton on March 18th, specifically aimed at trombone players of all ages from Grade 5 standard up.

Limited spaces

There are limited spaces, as throughout the workshop each participant will receive personal tuition time from one of the UKs finest professional trombone players.

And even if you don't play the trombone and want to come along and gain tips and advice from Simon, then make sure you book a place too.


Simon is rightly regarded as one of the UKs finest professional trombonists and studied at Chetham's School of Music and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama as well as being a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and European Union Youth Orchestra.

He has performed with many of the UK's leading symphonic ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra and Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and as also solo trombone with Black Dyke Band, Fairey and YBS Bands.

And even if you don't play the trombone and want to come along and gain tips and advice from Simon, then make sure you book a place too4BR
