The NAMM Foundation in association with pBone presented the “NAMM Trombone Circle Workshop”, delivered by pBone Director of Education, Chris Fower, at the NAMM2014 show in Anahiem, California this January.
During the workshop Chris shared some of the interesting first-access and large group music instrumental education work that has been developing in the UK and Europe over the last ten years and how elements of this work could be useful in developing brass playing skills at the elementary level in the USA.
A crowd of participants gathered and joined in with Chris’ interactive session, playing on pBones and discussing the informal learning style of the trombone circle.
In the resources side bar you can find a detailed description of the session along with plans of the session and a ten-week course, descriptions of activities and a longer discussion about a year long program.
