Concert Band

Conductor Erin Ellenburg will guide the Summer School Concert Band through a week of collaborative music-making.  This will be an opportunity to focus on music written specifically for concert band, develop critical ensemble skills, teamwork, communication and creativity, and improve sight-reading through a series of rehearsals and workshops.

Thanks to the support of Melbourne’s best band tutors and music educators, participants will sit alongside musicians of a similar standard, develop rhythmic and technical skills together and be motivated by the shared goal of the final Summer School performance.
