Today has seen the band host a workshop style day as part of our preparation for the North of England Brass Band Championships in two weeks time. The band split into sections and worked with individual tutors before coming together for a full band rehearsal.
The band would like to say a massive thank you to Dan Thomas, Adam Reed & Garry Reed (Black Dyke), Tina Mortimer (NASUWT Riverside) & Ed Chapman (Reg Vardy) for being fabulous tutors and leading the sectionals. The band members got a lot out of their expertise and a lot of great work was done towards The Golden Sabre.
Also, a thank you goes to Pittington Primary for allowing us to use the school for the day.
