COURSE: Advanced Wind Ensembles with the London Myriads

Friday November 16 2018

 We are delighted to return for the third time in 2018 to Benslow Music for our popular ensemble course.

The course runs from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th November 2018, with an optional extra day until the 19th if desired.

STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

"The London Myriad Ensemble return to Benslow Music with their longrunning course designed specifically for pre-formed wind ensembles. Tutors work intensively with each group on a rotational basis to ensure a broad range of input on your chosen repertoire. The aim of this unique course is to capitalize on the way an established group functions, enabling in-depth exploration of the specific ensemble and rehearsal skills that working ensembles encounter. As always, the Myriads offer some optional extras on top of their committed coaching, also offering useful advice on rehearsal technique and performance issues as well as instrument specific advice where required. Applications are welcomed from any configuration of wind or wind and piano ensembles from trios to dectets."
