Big Band rehearsal and performance

Bill Watson has been the Musical Director of the very successful Durham Youth Jazz Orchestra, winners of the BBC Big Band Competition, Edinburgh International Jazz Festival Big Band Competition, N.F.M.Y. and B.A.S.B.W.E.
A Big band course or workshop can be designed to suit your requirements. The following ideas can be used, but if you have any particular interests or requirements please let us know:
  1. Full Big band rehearsal with Bill Watson
  2. Rehearsing your own library for a specific concert, competition or event.
  3. Sectional rehearsals, highlighting phrasing, balance and structure.
  4. Improvising/soloing in a big band or small band.
  5. An introduction to new music, graded to suit the standard and experience of your band.
  6. We can supply other professional musicians and educators to work in sectional rehearsals and perform with your band members.
  7. Small band rhythm section, front line and soloing sessions.
Courses can be organised to run for as many days as you wish and can include a range of professional musicians, coaching your chosen instruments.
