Three Learning Festival workshops are now on YouTube

Thursday 17 February 2022

The three online Learning Festival workshops which followed the AGM on Sunday 30 January are now available to watch on the SBBA YouTube channel.

SBBA patron and renowned trumpeter Prof John Wallace, who recently received the Queen’s Medal for Music, shared his passion for all things brass in the first workshop entitled ‘What Makes Banding Work – Reasons For Optimism’. You can catch up with his talk here.

The next workshop was entitled ‘I've been a volunteer all this time, how come nobody told me?’ featuring Alan Stevenson, CEO of Volunteer Scotland, talking about why many of us volunteer regularly and how some of us volunteer and don’t even realise it! Check out the video here.

The Learning Festival was rounded off with a workshop for new and aspiring conductors by popular musical director Stuart Black entitled ‘Picking up the baton’ in which he interspersed his talk with practical demonstrations of conducting techniques for different rhythms and changing music dynamics. This presentation is available here.
