Lydney Training Band, recently held their fourth annual workshop for brass and percussion, led by Black Dyke trombone star Brett Baker.

It proved to be a fantastic success, with no less than 54 mixed ability players ranging from 6 weeks learning to over 54 years experience, enjoying a great day full of challenging music led by Brett and his team of four excellent tutors.

It really was a great day, and it was so encouraging to see the mix of players enjoying themselves Band Chairman, Kevin Ford

Great day

Band Chairman Kevin Ford told 4BR: "It really was a great day, and it was so encouraging to see the mix of players enjoying themselves.

Brett was superb, and the inclusion of a Learner Group was a new initiative this year enabling us to open the workshop to everyone of all levels. We are already being asked when we are putting the next one on!"
