Commenting on behalf of Yamaha, Product Marketing Specialist Jeremy Smith says, “Louis is a terrific role model and inspiration to the next generation of players, expanding his role beyond that of a musician into teaching, production and content creation. We’re sure that Louis’ webinar will break new ground in just the same way as his playing does.”

The webinar is free to access for Brass Bands England members or £5 for non-members and will be delivered using the Zoom webinar platform.
