The first Young Tubas event of the academic year was held on Sunday and 11 young Tuba players had a great day working with Les and 2 RNCM students, Conall Gormley and James Seabrook. After some fun warm up games the group created a brand new piece from scratch and also rehearsed 2 ensemble pieces and a hymn tune. This was all performed in a mini-concert for parents at the end of the session. The next Young Tubas is Sunday 19th November. Don’t miss it!!
After a successful first year, RNCM Young Tubas resumes on Sunday 8th October, led by Les and RNCM student, Conall Gormley.
Make sure to come along to these free sessions as they are always good fun and include ensemble and solo playing, plus the chance to ask any brass related questions you have!!
With upcoming solos performances in the UK and a trip to Argentina at the start of 2018 I’ve been trying out some new repertoire. It would seem my phone wasn’t too interested in this one!!
A huge thanks to Steven Bey, Eirik Gjerdevik, Joanna Ross Hersey, Carol Jantsch, Rob Mackay , Clayton Maddox, Jesus Navas Valverde, Scott Roeder, Sandro Suter and Aaron Tindall.

Each afternoon consisted of sports activities with a visit from two commandos who put everyone (including staff) through their paces!
Les was a tutor on the course alongside his colleagues fromTubalaté working with players in the Brass band
With the dates for 2018 already in the diary, next year can’t come quickly enough!
