Brass Bands England's Development Programme Online: Conducting Bootcamp with Mark Heron
This week's Brass Bands England Development Programme Online session is being led by RNCM Head of Conducting Mark Heron.
It takes place on Thursday 25th June — 7.00pm (BST) and will see Mark discuss the fundamentals of posture; taking care of physical well-being; and exploring beat-patterns and physicality in relation to matters such as tempo, dynamic, articulation and sound quality.
Participants are encouraged to grab a baton (or a pencil) and clear enough space in front of their computer screen to stand up and wave their arms around!!
As part of the webinar, materials from ConductIT will also be showcased. ConductIT is an ongoing project to develop online music courses and resources.

Down the pub
After the broadcast you can join regulars down at the 'BBE Pub' to discuss the session and other things happening in the banding world.
Mark's session will mark the 14th week of BBE Webinars which have had excellent reach (over 10k views for some videos).
The workshops will be delivered online using the Zoom webinar platform so attendees can interact and ask questions throughout the session directly.
The session will also be available on Facebook live on the BBE facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/brassbandsengland and BBE facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/BrassBandsEngland/ for which users can sign up to for free.
The Brass Bands England Team will be taking a short break from delivering online events during July, but will return in August for a new programme of online events and training webinars to be announced very soon.
