Home Workshop info Dates & Venues Music FAQs Services

One-off woodwind ensemble workshops in central Scotland, specifically intended for adult learners or 'returners' on flute, oboe, clarinet or bassoon.

Now extended to include saxophone (& brass) workshops, plus various light-hearted 'play-along' events that also cater for late starters/rusty returners on brass, recorders and bowed strings.

Are you a relative beginner seeking entry-level experience of playing in a group situation?  Or perhaps you have fairly good technical skills but would like to develop greater confidence and extend your experience in a relaxed and friendly context.  Or maybe you are looking for the chance to have a 'good blow' and some sight-reading challenges, without the need to make a regular commitment.  Dig out your instrument and give Blow & Blast a go!
