Blow & Blast woodwind ensemble workshop dates and venues
Sadly, all Blow & Blast workshops have had to be CANCELLED for the forseeable future, in response to Government guidelines regarding the Coronavirus outbreak.

Keep playing...if you're more-or-less confined to the house, it's a good and productive way to entertain yourselves...and we'll look forward to hearing players' progress once we are able to get back in action!

Fingers crossed that our summer courses for Benslow Music Trust (Hertfordshire) and Higham Hall (Lake District) will be going ahead in 2021.

Weekend Courses (Benslow Music & Higham Hall)
These courses are run by the respective organisations, so all booking/accommodation and price enquiries should be directed to Benslow or Higham, as appropriate.  However, if you have queries about the musical content of a weekend course and its suitability for you, we will be happy to try to advise.

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.
