Midlands Big Band Taster Day

28 Sep 2019
10:00AM - 4:00PM

Do you play the saxophone, trumpet, cornet, flugel, trombone, piano, bass (either double bass or guitar), drums, percussion or guitar? Do you fancy a day playing the music of the big band era with fellow musicians? No previous big band experience is necessary and the day will be all about having fun through music.

Although you will need to be able to read music to a resonable standard:

  • Approx Grade 5 standard for the horn sections
  • Trombonists will need to read bass clef
  • Pianists and guitarists should be able to read from chord symbols
