2012 Summer Schools

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 13 November 2011

In 2012 members of Fodens will yet again be involved in various summer schools helping train and encourage the next generation of budding brass and percussion players as well as some of the older musicians who use these summer schools as their annual holiday where they enjoy a week of music making with old and new friends. What ever the reason for attending a summer school all the participants leave the various courses a better player/musician as well as enjoying a great week of music making and social activities.
2012 will see Fodens members tutor with the 'National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain' 'National Youth Band of Scotland' 'National Youth Band of Switzerland' and 'Armagh Summer School' as well as numerous coaching days with various music services and bands prior to contests/concerts.
2012 see the Launch of a new summer school in Bolsover where some of the bands principal players have been invited to be tutors for the week

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
