Brett Baker

A quick thanks to everyone who attended the Brett Baker workshop and concert held last weekend.

We're all agreed that the event was a brilliant success. We all hope that you had a great time, and learnt loads from having Brett around.

We'll be sure to take on his exercises, so get your rags and mouthpieces ready!
