The Youth Training Day being held by West Midlands Brass Bands Association on Saturday, 24 November 2012 at Studley High School, Warwickshire, is being directed by Warren Belshaw, Musical Director, City of Birmingham Brass Band. The event is open to brass players and percussionists aged under 18 years of all playing standards.
The aims of the training day are to improve the playing standards of the participants through group sessions with tutors, and in a full band environment. The Association training days encourage and motivate young players to attain higher standards to benefit their own bands and the wider community, as well as themselves. The event is open to all brass bands, brass groups and individuals. The cost for the day is £5.00 per person.
