RMPBB retreat with Demondrae Thurman

Postby John Banther » Tue Apr 05, 2016 9:10 pm

Hi Everyone,

The RMPBB Mountain Retreat is a unique opportunity for brass players players from around the world to come together to share their love of playing a brass intrument. Participants come from all walks of life: students, teachers, professionals, enthusiasts, part-time players, comeback players, etc. All are welcome in a noncompetitive, friendly, supporting atmosphere where learning and sharing knowledge is the key element to the week.

These are a lot of fun and a great hang as everyone stays in a giant house we rent for the week.

This is open to all brass players. I will be teaching (my bio is below) Tuba/Euph, and Zenas Kim-Banther is teaching trombone (her bio: http://www.zenaskim-banther.com/#!about/cjg9)
