Orana Brass musicians were joined by euphonium players from various schools on Thursday 4 June for a brass workshop with NZ euphonium virtuoso, Riki McDonnell. Riki played a number of pieces for us, gave us some tip on breathing, warmups and technical aspects of playing a brass instrument. We were also joined by a number of instrumental teachers and Head of Music at UWA, Dr Alan Lourens. Dr Lourens has a masters degree in euphonium performance and we were lucky to hear both Alan and Riki perform a duet together. Our 4 Orana euphonium/ baritone students were then lucky to have a private lesson with Riki.
