UniBrass Conductors workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
On Saturday 30th November, the UniBrass Foundation will be hosting a new day-long project to help student conductors develop their skills at the University of Nottingham led by Russell Grey.


With kind support from Arts Council England and Besson Instruments, the UniBrass Foundation is hosting its first conducting course aimed specifically at student conductors. The day will begin at 10:30 AM at Holy Trinity Church, Lenton, Nottingham. 

The day will include the opportunity to conduct the University of Nottingham Brass Band (regular attendees of the annual UniBrass Contest) and receive tips, pointers and video review with Russell Greys expert guidance to improve both rehearsal skills and techniques.

The day will be the first course to follow the new format Conductors Development Programme created through a partnership between Brass Bands England(BBE) and the National  Association of Brass Band Conductors(NABBC).

Russell who is President of the NABBC, Professional Conductor at Reg Vardy Band and regularly works with some of the best Brass Bands in the world including with Fodens with whom he won the National Brass Band championships in 2018 means the students will be taught by one of the finest conductors in the world.

Working with both Russell and the University of Nottingham band on the course will give conductors the perfect chance to prepare for the 10th UniBrass contest in February 2020.

The UniBrass Foundation is very grateful to have received funding to run the course from Arts Council England and sponsorship of course materials from Besson Instruments, which allows the course to be run at the minimum cost to students. 

The workshop costs just £10 to register and includes all course materials as well as a buffet lunch.
