    What is it?
    The inaugural LSO St Luke's Academy will involve 40 young orchestral brass instrumentalists aged 14-23 from across the UK in a week of workshops and masterclasses at LSO St Luke's. The programme will include:

    Individual masterclasses

    Orchestral repertoire coaching

    Orchestral education training

    Tuition will be provided by the following LSO Principals: Rod Franks (trumpet), Tim Jones (horn), Dudley Bright (trombone), Robert Hughes (bass trombone) and Patrick Harrild (tuba).
    What's the repertoire?

    Set pieces:

    When is it?
