On Saturday 14th October, all members of the Junior Band were invited to attend a workshop put together by Alan and members of the senior band!
The workshop started with a theory session with Alan and then each section of the Junior Band went with a member of the Senior Band so they could have one to one help with a difficult piece of Christmas Music.
The conductor of the Senior Band, Matt, provided a session on how to sit when playing, how to clean your instruments and some overall tips on how to become a better and more improved player.
For the finale, as a collective, the senior members who came to help out and the juniors played the Christmas swing song, putting in the corrections they were given and it sounded spectacular!
There was lots of positive feedback from juniors and parents and the morning was a great success!
So a huge thank you to Sir Alan, Matt, Geoff, Tom, Bernard and Steve for giving up their time to help!!
Let’s hope for many more workshops to come…
