BWV 1057 for Brass - Deutscher Musikschulkongress

If you are a music teacher living in a German-speaking country, chances are high that you will attend the „Deutscher Musikschulkongress“ in May, which is held in Mainz, this year.

At the final concert on the 22nd May at the Congress Centrum Mainz, the chamber ensemble of the conservatoire Mainz will play J.S. Bach’s Cembalo Concerto BWV 1057 in a version for Brass. I was asked to adapt the string section to a brass quintet so suit the lineup of the ensemble. The concert is open to anybody, so if you like Bach (and lots of other great works), drop by! I am very much looking forward to the concert. You can find more information on the website of the Musikschulkongress.

Sibelius 6 Workshop at the PCK Mainz

You’ve heard about that strange „Sibelius“ a lot of times, but never really gotten around to check it out?
Or are you a seasoned Sibelius user, but have not (yet) upgraded to Sibelius 6?
Maybe you indeed use Sibelius 6, but have felt there was more?

Wait no longer!
On Saturday, 01/29/2011 from 4 PM, there will be a Sibelius 6 workshop at the Peter Cornelius Conservatoire Mainz, hosted by yours truly.

We will deal with a lot of topics, including:
- Introduction to Sibelius 6 / Sibelius 6 First
- Writing your own scores
- Composing with Sibelius
- Creating scores for ensembles
- Use in education
- Creation of demo recordings
There will also be time for some BYOQ (Bring Your Own Questions).

Admission is free, so please come and see for yourself. You can send me a message via the contact form if you want to attend, and I’ll make sure you have a seat :)
Please register on the Facebook event page.
