Brass Bands Englands branding of Philip Harper black and white picture

In my 20 years developing as a band conductor, I have often thought deeply about what it is exactly I am trying to achieve – the essence of my art.  When BBE asked me to take a national lead on this very topic I was very excited to have the chance to share my experience in a way which could potentially benefit all levels of banding.  I’m very much looking forward to meeting a wide spectrum of many like-minded people across the country in these workshops, which I hope will be inspirational to all”.

Philip will discuss the importance to artistic leaders of self-learning, curious listening and wild imagination, as well as covering the basics of ‘on the ground’ artistic direction as a conductor working with bands in rehearsals.

Each topic will be illustrated with practical examples, including a live rehearsal session with a band.

This training day is open to all, but is particularly aimed at Musical Directors and band committee members.
