Brass in Class

December 19, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm


The Auckland Bands Association again are organising a holiday workshop day with one of the best brass players in New Zealand – David Bremner.

David is the Director of Education for the Brass Bands Association of NZ (BBANZ) and conducts the current champion band of New Zealand – Wellington Brass. He has many accomplishments in the music world as a recording artist, performer and conductor. BBANZ provide his services to brass bands and the wider music community for no or low cost

We invite all brass and percussion players of all ages and those learning for at least one year to join an all comers band for a day workshop and seminar where David will share his experiences and stories in a very entertaining way, along with quizzes and games. Adults also join in and last year some travelled from Hamilton to hear David.

REGISTRATION: Please email Peter Whyte on the email : Aucklandbandsassocation@gmail.com so we know numbers before hand

We look forward to giving students and adults a real high before the holidays so they are motivated to continue on their musical journey in 2020.
