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

Most 'one-off' Birnam workshops this term are Thursday daytime or Saturday sessions.  The Performers' Group has temporarily ousted most of our standard Sunday workshops.  There are a couple of Sunday morning workshops for Easy Woodwind, to provide further experience for our First Notes beginners and anyone whose New Year resolution involves developing skills on a woodwind instrument!

Callander workshops are always on Saturdays.  These only cater for flute, oboe, clarinet & bassoon.

Crieff saxophone/brass workshops are on Wednesday evenings; All at C mini-orchestra is on a Friday afternoon.

Perth workshops are on Saturdays.

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.
