blow_the_dust_off_your_instrument_playing_day


Did you learn to play an instrument at school but haven't got it out of the case for a while? Then come and join us for Blow the Dust!

Did you learn to play an instrument when you were at school but haven’t got it out of the case for a long time? Or have you taken up playing an instrument in adult life just for fun? Do you like playing orchestral music? Were you a member of the school recorder group?

If the answer is YES to any of these questions then come to Blow the Dust off your Instrument Summer 2018 course.

This playing day will give you the chance to renew your old skills or put new-found ones into practice in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The conductor will be Angela Kay, the Artistic Director of Music for Everyone who blends expertise and enthusiasm with a great sense of humour!

The music has been chosen to give scope to players of all abilities and will include the well known ‘March‘ from Bizet’s Carmen, movements from Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite, and to get your foot tapping, the well known signature tune from The Pink Panther!

There will also be items for wind band (conductor Gill Henshaw) and string orchestra (conductor Ann-Marie Shaw). The recorder ensemble will also have a varied diet of music.

The instrumental parts will be sent out in advance of the course, to give you time to get to grips with the notes ahead of the day itself.

Please note: This course is not suitable for players of a standard below Associated Board Grade 2 (except recorders)
