Coalburn link up with Fantastic Mr Fox for tuba fun

A free day of tuba fun will see the fantastic playing talents of Richard Fox available for everyone to come along and enjoy.

All things tuba
  All things tuba — and for free with Coalburn and Richard Fox

The Coalburn Band has linked up with South Lanarkshire Council Instrumental Services to announce a fun and exciting afternoon of workshops with tuba artist Richard Fox.

The free event takes place on Saturday 16th September at Woodpark Primary School in Lesmahagow.

Freelance

Richard's diverse musical education has led him to develop interests in jazz, free improvisation, and 'world music', as well as traditional tuba repertoire. He currently works as a freelance tuba player in the London area and regularly plays with his jazz group Kairos Ensemble.

He has also written and arranged a number of works for brass, including 'Tuba Tooter', a tutor book for beginner Eb tuba players, 'Brace Yourself for Brass', a collection of pieces for players with braces, and numerous arrangements for brass quintet which are published by Foxy Dots Music.

We are thrilled to be working in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council Instrumental Services and to have secured the services of Richard Fox to lead our open day. The day is free and open to allAlan Court
