Flowers Band have released a video series of solos and top tips from their principal players, as well as asking other brass players to send in their own solos for expert feedback.
Flowers wanted to do something different from now-standard social distance banding video and that would allow bandsmen worldwide to join in by sending in their own videos of solos to be featured. The video series features section principals and a few others, giving advice on a variety of different aspects of playing.
This post lists the videos that have been released up to 19.05.2020, and will be periodically updated with the newest releases so you can check back in later without missing out!
