For Autumn 2023, Saxophone/Brass workshops will take place at our Birnam and Crieff venues – please note that the Crieff workshop will now be held on a MONDAY evening.
A mixed-ability workshop for improver/intermediate-level players on saxophone or brass (orchestral or band) instruments. Ideal for those who are comfortably underway, perhaps playing at around Grade 3 – 4 level or above, who are looking to acquire or extend ensemble skills in a friendly, supportive environment.
This group can also accommodate experienced musicians who have only recently taken up their saxophone or brass instrument but can read music fluently and play up-to-pitch – let us know your ‘comfort’ note range at the time of booking, so that we’ll be sure to have appropriate music available.
Our music consists of a mixture of light classical, traditional and original pieces, specifically designed to strengthen sight-reading skills and build confidence. Learn some of the techniques and terminology used in ensemble, band and orchestral contexts while having fun making music with others.
Interested? Check our Information, Dates & Venues page to find the next appropriate workshop, then get in touch to book your place. Parts are specially arranged to suit the confidence and ability level of participants, so let us know your instrument (key, clef, etc) and also a little about your approximate standard and previous musical experience. You will find our e-mail address at the foot of the page.
A bit too challenging for you? Consider coming along to our Happy Honkers workshop instead. This is designed specifically for relative beginners, so practice copies of music are available in advance. Find out more
