My band and I recently had the pleasure of having Simon in to conduct a rehearsal with us. It could only be described as a masterclass and history lesson all rolled into one! |
It's useful to know the origins of the music you are playing,in our case that night, swing etc. It cant be easy to stand up in front of an unfamiliar group especially brass bands who are very vocal when they want to be..
So if you get the opportunity to spend some time with Simon go for it.
PS Simon if you read this, I was the lone girl in the cornets and.. not sure about that shirt!!!
