RIAM Summer Wind Ensemble

Hi guys,

Previously I have spoken about how important it is to take part in an orchestra if it is available to you. Joining an orchestra not only benefits you in your performance ability with your instrument, but also it is a terrific and fun way to broaden your knowledge of music. I couldn’t recommend it more.

Today I came across an excellent course offered by the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Please see details below. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough. Check it out!!! 🙂


An exciting opportunity to take part in a non-residential wind band course led by conductor Brendan Breslin, with challenging & fun repertoire for wind band, as well as fun activities & team building exercises:
