BASBWE Wind Band Conductors' Course
in association with the BASBWE Education Trust
Timothy Reynish, Mark Heron & Russell Cowieson
This course is for conductors at the intermediate and advanced levels with an interest in wind music. Up to twenty-five students will be accepted as "active" participants. Observers are also encouraged and will be fully involved in general technique sessions, discussions and playing in the class ensemble, but they will only conduct at the discretion of the tutors. An important feature of this course is that all active participants receive podium timeon each day of the course.
The class will explore conducting techniques, score preparation, rehearsal and training skills. A CD and score library will be available for reference and special emphasis will be placed on extending the knowledge of repertoire at all levels. One session of the week will be devoted to grade 1 - 3 pieces. All conducting sessions will be videod for review during the course and participants receive a DVD of their work at the end of the week. The course will run concurrently with the Wind Ensemble and there will be close liaison between the two. Only £500.00 (Euro 580.00 $775.00) for seven nights full board, and full tuition fees
