Cornwall Music Education Hub funded Next Steps sessions for Wind and Brass players in the Bude area and in the Wadebridge area for the summer term.

We have been delighted that at each of the venues we have ensembles of approximately fifteen wind and brass players aiming to encourage the young people to develop their musical skills through ensemble playing. At both centres we have been working on two pieces, 'Bare Necessities' and 'I've Got My Eye On You', and we are excited to announce that on Monday 10th July 7pm at Wadebridge School, the players from both areas will come together and form a wind ensemble of around 30 players to perform their pieces as part of the secondary school concert. The feedback from many parents has been that their children have really enjoyed performing and learning in mixed ensembles and instrumental teachers have also noticed and commented on improvements in pupils who have been attending the Next Step sessions. We hope you enjoy the short clip from a rehearsal in Marhamchurch.
