The Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester will run a series of instrument-specific short courses this spring, led by some of the country's leading tutors and performers.
A day dedicated to the cornet will take place on Sunday 29th March, whilst on Sunday 19th April there will be courses for euphonium, French horn, tenor horn, trombone and percussion.
Designed for players who are considering conservatoire study, planning a career in a performance setting or wishing to enhance their musical experience, each course provides exceptional learning opportunities through masterclasses and tuition in technique, performance and ensemble work.
Participants will also receive advice on preparing for auditions and performances and have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A with tutors before presenting an informal concert for family and friends.
The courses are provided by renowned players and teachers with the aim to develop in participants the importance of a whole mind and body approach to communicating music through their instrument.
Tutors include Prof Roger Webster, Richard Marshall, Prof Steven Mead, Dr David Thornton, Lindsey Stoker, Owen Farr, Katy Jones, Christian Jones, Simone Rebello and Le Yu.
