Blow & Blast woodwind ensemble workshop dates and venues -  to August 2019

Our workshop programme is a bit quieter over the summer months, with certain groups/venues taking a break and others being combined.

At Birnam we are continuing our Easy Woodwind (beginner level) workshops on Sunday mornings and having an extended band workshop on Sunday afternoons.  There is one Thursday Intermediate woodwind session in May.

Callander workshops are always on Saturdays.  These only cater for flute, oboe, clarinet & bassoon.  We will be having one mixed-ability group in May and August.

Sorry, no Crieff workshops currently scheduled over the summer.

Perth workshops are on Saturdays.  These will continue as normal in May and June.

Weekend Courses (Benslow Music & Higham Hall)

General Information

Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.  This also gives us more time to plan the music to suit each player's capabilities.

If, after booking, you find you will be unable to come, please let us know as soon as possible.  Your absence may mean that we are obliged to change some of the music.  Also, someone else might like to be offered the opportunity to participate.
