The Annual General Meeting of the Scottish Brass Band Association (SBBA) will take place on Sunday 26th January.
The formal proceedings form part of a Learning Festival day at Falkirk Football Stadium — as SBBA begins a year of 125th anniversary celebrations.
The Guest Speakers this year include the highly respected Nigel Boddice MBE, who will make a presentation on the art of conducting for players, conductors and band training, concentrating on the three key elements of technique, musicianship and psychology.
Nigel will be joined by Alister Cush, who will address important issues surrounding the Community Asset Transfer Scheme and on how to become a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). The presentation arises from the challenges faced by Irvine & Dreghorn Band when face with losing their rehearsal premises of 30 years in 2018.
Carole Allan will provide workshops safeguarding, whilst there are also workshop experiences to enjoy on percussion and the use of auxiliary percussion. There is also an important presentation being made on the effects of dyslexia and music.
Anne Crookston will present a talk on the purpose of adjudicating, giving an overview on approaches to performance that make an impact in the box, methods of scoring and keeping track of performances, and even why someone should consider becoming an adjudicator.
