Dartington International Summer School: Brass Courses 17th-24th August 2019

Brass Warm-up Session
PAUL ARCHIBALD, CHRIS BATCHELOR AND BRETT BAKER | SESSION 1

The essential morning ritual: a warm-up session for brass players, taken in turn by three very different brass tutors. A great way to start your day by focusing on breathing and the fundamentals of technique.

Trumpet Workshop
PAUL ARCHIBALD AND CHRIS BATCHELOR | SESSION 2

Our trumpet class is open to trumpeters of all music backgrounds. Paul Archibald is one of UK’s busiest orchestral trumpeters, regularly working with Britten Sinfonia, London Philharmonic and his own English Brass Ensemble. Chris Batchelor is one of the coolest trumpeters in jazz. You’ll be learning music techniques in a variety of styles, and be working on a whole range of repertoire. There’ll be a chance to perform informally at the end of the week.

Trombone and Low Brass Workshop
BRETT BAKER | SESSION 2

Brett Baker is one of the world’s top trombonists and educators, working with musicians and groups as diverse as Black Dyke Band, Grimethorpe Colliery Band and Goldfrapp. He’s passionate about teaching the trombone, and is the director of the Singapore and Thailand Low Brass Festivals. As well as coaching, he’ll be encouraging you to perform and collaborate with the trumpet and jazz faculty all week.

Brass Ensemble
PAUL ARCHIBALD AND BRETT BAKER | SESSION 3

A chance to work together on great brass repertoire for trumpets, horns and trombones, with two of the UK’s top brass players and teachers. We’ll be working on Paul Patterson’s Count Down, Richard Rodney Bennett’s Flowers of the Forest and Paul Lovatt-Cooper’s The Hampshire Suite, for an informal performance on Friday lunchtime.
There’ll be opportunities to play in the beautiful outdoor spaces of Dartington too – weather permitting! Music will be provided at the start of the week.
