4BR speaks to Mauro Martins to find out more about what he has been up to during lockdown.

Boost Your Talent

He has certainly been busy following the release of his 5 star CD, 'Flow' — starting a new project entitled 'Boost Your Talent' where students can link up for a month long series of lessons and masterclasses with him and some of the finest euphonium players and musicians around — such as David Childs, Demondre Thurman, Blake Birmingham, Segio Carolino and Thomas Ruedi.

The Adams and Denis Wick artist talks to 4BR Editor Iwan Fox about his plans and what the course has to offer.
