Geneva invite for Bates masterclass

The second Geneva masterclass with Foden's horn star Jonathan Bates will be held in Stockton on Tees later this month — and all are welcome.

Geneva
  The masterclass will be led by Foden's horn star Jonathan Bates

Following the successful take up for their first Bandroom & Concert Masterclass, this weekend with jazz virtuoso Steve Waterman, Geneva Instruments will be holding their second event at their Stockton on Tees bandroom and showroom on Saturday 15th December (TS18 2SG).

It will be led by Foden's solo horn Jonathan Bates and will start at 1.00pm and finish at 4.00pm.

Tips and play

The first event with jazz virtuoso Steve Waterman is sure to be great success (1.00pm — 4.00pm on Saturday 8th December), and so it will be the turn of one of the Geneva Artist and one of the brass band movement's finest horn players impart his advice in a friendly open forum, where participants can ask questions, gain tips, play and even try out Geneva instruments for themselves.

Discussion

There will also be a discussion on performance anxiety and nervousness — an area that many players at all levels are finding is offering a great benefit to their enjoyment of playing.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
