Brass Bands England are delighted to partner with Hertfordshire Music Service to deliver an exciting CPD session for Youth Band Leaders in and around Hertfordshire.

This practical workshop day will be led by BBE Youth Brass Development Specialist Deirdre Waller-Box and Hertfordshire Music Service Tutor Ash Horton at the Watford School of Music. This is an ideal professional development opportunity for educators based in schools or community settings, and gives a great chance to network with teachers in the local area.

What will the workshop cover?

During the morning workshop (10:00 - 13:00) Deirdre and Ash will be focusing on delivering exciting sessions to beginner brass players, including:

  • Using rhythm and singing warm-ups
  • Developing skills in playing to backing tracks
  • Teaching techniques to beginner players
  • Using confidence building exercises
  • How to structure a rehearsal
  • Encouraging trying out different instruments

Attendees of the CPD session are welcome to stay for the afternoon to observe the Hertfordshire County Junior Brass rehearsal (14:00 - 17:00) led by Ash Horton. This free-to-access opportunity is open to all young brass players in the area. To register any young people for the County Junior Brass session please email
The day of events will finish with an informal performance by Hertfordshire County Youth Brass (led by Paul Fisher) at 16:30.
