Academie de Cuivres et Percussion de Larmor Plage, France

Last weekend I was invited to give a masterclass to some young conductors in France.

The organsiation was impressive and it is great to see so many young and talented brassplayers  working together. All teachers involved where stunning and so dedicated.

The students of the conducting class worked with me and the artistic director of the week Florent Didier.

The Spijkerpakkenband worked with the conducting students and gave a galaconcert.

Anthony Gallinier, the organiser of the Akademie performed a soloconcert with the Spijkerpakkenband.

Sebastien Cabarat and  Yamaha Europe need a big thank for their kind support !

It is a absolute great week for anyone who likes a brassweek in France, with great teachers and wonderfull concerts ! Bravo and Merci Beaucoup !
