This all day workshop was in preparation for the band's participation at the Scottish Youth Championships in Perth two weekends ago.
The boost in confidence from such a respected and talented individual player cannot be underestimated. Jonathan is also a composer of growing renown and has already worked with some of the leading lights in UK brass circles.
He is developing his skills as a conductor and a tutor and expressed his delight with the reaction of the youngsters to his guidance and advice.
The band followed the workshop with a recital of their championship programme to a full house.
