Mental health link for SBBA Learning Roadshow

Friday 14 August 2020

Further to our post of 29 July, details are being firmed up for the SBBA virtual Learning Roadshow which will be taking place in September.

Three contributors have already signed up for the event:

·      Author, performance coach and mental health advocate Tabby Kerwin will deliver a Zoom session on ‘Mental Health in Brass Bands’

·      Lancashire Music Service’s Helen Minshall is producing a recorded session entitled ‘Brass Beginnings’, a guide to the early stages of brass playing and building a band

·      Jack Nissan from Tinderbox Collective is planning a Zoom session on ‘The use of Zoom for online teaching’.

A link has now been provided for the Tabby Kerwin event which you can access here.

Two Learning Roadshows had been planned for the east and west of Scotland during June and September with the intention of reaching out to brass band musicians with useful workshop and information sessions as a means of celebrating SBBA’s 125th anniversary year.

Now, because of COVID-19, the two events are being combined into a single, online experience which will be beamed into people’s homes in a few weeks time.

Further participants will be announced in due course. In the meantime, make a note in your diary for the Learning Roadshow on 20 September.
