Preservation through participation.

Dear all

We are very pleased to announce that following the success of Paul van der Linden's Oboe development course in January we are offering a second course with him this year. The course will follow a slightly different format to the one earlier in the year and there will again be 'Watch @ Work' sessions, opportunities for those not participating to view work in progress.

Our other courses are filling up nicely, there are still some places available on some of the courses, coming up next, Clarinet Barrel 'Experiment' Day, Sunday 30th March. See below for links.
