Come to BANDWISE 2024 – an instrumental workshop day & informal concert for all young woodwind, brass and percussion players of grade 2 standard and above. (For string players – check out STRINGWISE!)

Rehearsals are led by experienced conductors and a team of specialist instrumentalists on the workshop day. Family and friends are invited to watch the informal concert the following weekend at Nottingham’s Albert Hall!

There will be two bands:

  • Bandwise 1: grade 2-4

A music pack (including rehearsal tracks which are accessible via digital download or a CD) will be sent out approximately 4 weeks before the course. These tracks take you through the music and the workshop day rehearsals carry on from where they leave off.
