FYCB busy online in 2020

The band has continued to shine online, adapting quickly to online meetings since March, 2020.

In Term 2 we met for warm-ups and recorded weekly challenges, keeping each other motivated during the difficult period.

Throughout Term 3, having gone into lockdown No. 2, the band partook in the Halfa With a Master series. This was a series of 30 minute interviews with 10 professional musicians from around the world who donated their time to chat to host Louisa and the band about all things music: routine, career stories, tools for performance anxiety, repertoire ideas and more. We are so grateful to all the Masters who took the time to chat with us!

Our first Master interview all the way from Wales was with Dr. Robert Childs

In Term 4 we are continuing warm ups and being mentored by three professional musicians in their area of expertise: high brass, low brass, and percussion. Each month band members submit a recording of a piece to receive feedback on. Repertoire themes include: October- articulation and/ or dynamics, November- lyricism, December- own choice.

Now that restrictions are easing, we hope to be playing together soon!
