The Welsh Brass trio

Welsh Brass Trio

Now in its 25th year of entertaining, informative and humorous children's concerts the WELSH BRASS TRIO invites you to treat your pupils to this valuable learning experience.

Described by many headteachers as the best input from any outside group, these concerts are guaranteed to arouse and awaken school children's interest in music, performing, history, and technology.

The music concerts trace the history and development of brass instruments from their origins to the present day. Starting with natural objects such as the conch shell and animal horns the children are expertly guided from the wooden musical instruments of the Tudors and Stuarts, through post horns, hunting horns, right up to the development of the modern day orchestral brass section.

Several more unusual objects are also played e.g. hosepipes, funnels, and even a fishing rod! The children also get the opportunity to play some of the musical instruments for themselves, much to their delight when it comes to the tuba!

A wide variety of music is performed during each school concert, ranging from the twelfth century to the present day, which includes film and television themes.

The Welsh Brass Trio has delighted audiences wherever it has performed. Children from three years old to eighteen years old have experienced these educational music concerts in their thousands.

Phil Dando and Tuba
The trio members have many years of children's concert experience, and, they have performed for the finest orchestras, opera companies, stage and brass bands in the country. They have accompanied top, international stars and are regularly seen on stage, television and heard on radio.
Many school children currently receive instrumental tuition from the trio members in their local primary schools and have attended brass courses run by the trio. For these reasons, the trio feel that they have a wealth of knowledge and experience to pass on to school children of all ages.
