These workshops look to improve the overall quality of bands playing and performance. In these sessions, Paul focuses on essentials of brass playing, looking at practical exercises to improve your individual playing to heighten the band's overall sound.

Roger Webster's attention is drawn to the mental and psychological aspects of efficient practice and performance methods. Both sessions have a consistent message that improving the quality of individual players can drastically the quality of your band overall.
