CANADIAN BRASS LECTURE DEMONSTRATIONS

How Lecture Demonstrations Work:

Lecture demonstrations constitute a fast-paced tour of our music and our musical lives. We strive to maintain an equal balance between education and entertainment throughout the session, with an emphasis on the joy of performing.We begin by introducing ourselves and the many various genres of music which comprise our repertoire, sometimes using musical examples to illustrate a point.We move through renaissance, romantic, contemporary classic -usually a piece written for us by a well-known composer –classical, jazz and pop in the space of several minutes, to show how much music has evolved, and how many different types of music are out there.

Canadian Brass intersperse the musical demonstrations with anecdotes from life on the road, how we work and create our unique sound, in addition to performance practice, rehearsal technique, etc.The session ends with a ‘Q & A’ segment (although sometimes questions from the outset set the direction of the session) and a show-stopping finale intended to reinforce the idea that playing, over all, should be fun!

Duration: 1 hour

CANADIAN BRASS MASTERCLASSES

HOW MASTERCLASSES WORK:

The session is all about improving the ensemble’s overall performance. Areas of importance we often talk about and stress are – performance, air and sound production, listening and communicating with one another and your audience, and of course, connecting with the music! The working session usually lasts an hour, during which time two to three pieces of music of the band director’s choice. Canadian Brass encourages workshop participants to prepare music from its extensive repertoire. Suggestions can be offered based on the level of the performers.

Our masterclasses are designed to accentuate the positive aspects of the ensemble, while providing feedback and suggestions to achieve the best possible sound. Conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, our wealth of knowledge and experience brings out the highest level of commitment and performance from those taking part. At the end of the session, a period of Q&A can take place, and we will typically end the masterclass by performing a suitably entertaining selection!

Duration: 1 to 1.5 hour
