Coaching Days

SAM 2840For the past 15 years Foden's Band have been holding training days with various Youth Organisations, Schools, Music Services and Adult Brass Bands.

Training Days are held to help train bands for forthcoming concerts, contests, recordings or for general guidance. The Foden's tutors are experienced teachers, generally  Principal players and all have full CRB/DBS clearance. As well as being great players, our tutors are also in regular demand as tutors for various national bodies such as National Youth Brass Bands of Great Britain, Wales, Scotland and National Children's Band.

Training days can be tailored to your specific requirements with full band rehearsals, sectional rehearsals, master classes, question and answer sessions as well as 'tutors' ensemble concerts.

A popular way to help recoup any costs is to hold a concert where the various pieces worked throughout the day are performed to a paying audience with the Foden's tutors being featured performing a number of pieces to show the versatility of the various instruments.
If you would like any further information about the band's training days please contact Mark Wilkinson (Band Manager)


What a fantastic, fresh approach, expertly delivered, with astonishing results. Bravo Foden's and its Youth Band! Brass Band World Magazine
