Is anyone else on the forum going to this next weekend in Hampshire?
It is at Damerham Village Hall near Fordingbridge in Hampshire.Sounds interesting - any more information about what, where, who, how much ?
Just a word for one of the tutors on the course - Mark Bassey (Ex.NYJO Trombonist and educator at the Trinity College of Music). The man was a revelation and an inspiration. A great player who is blessed with the knowledge, personality, people skills and dry wit to get things across in such a way that no-one feels out of their depth. Always encouraging and motivating on an individual, as well as a group level, it was just a joy to experience his workshops. If you ever get the chance to do this or see him play live, I would highly recommend you don't miss it!
He is due to play one of the Sunday Lunchtime "Jazz Matters" sessions later this year. He also appeared there earlier this year - there are some pictures on his website at Mark Bassey at The StablesI did speak to the 'arranger' at the Stables (for their Jazz Matters weekly session) to get him along.
