This is one of a popular series of BBE webinars held during the Covid-19 crisis, which seeks to delve into elements of the BBE Development programmes. The webinars have so far had over 45,000 viewers.
Russell's session will take place on a Zoom webinar for those who want to get involved and ask questions directly, as well as being available as a Facebook live video on the BBE Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/brassbandsengland.
The webinar will take place on Thursday 28th May, starting at 7.00pm (BST).
All the workshops are free, but BBE is asking participants to consider supporting the Brass Bands Emergency Fund with what they think sessions are worth.
The fund will use 100% of donated funds to support bands struggling during the crisis with ongoing freelance costs and other financial commitments.

Down the pub
During the session, attendees will be able to ask questions sent in via the registration form. The workshop will begin with a short presentation on how to use the Zoom platform effectively to get the most out of the workshop while participants get used to the set up before starting at about 7.10pm.
After the presentation you can also join plenty of others down at the 'BBE Pub' to discuss the session and other things happening in the banding world. It's proved to be a great way to make links, socialise and chat!
The BBE Development Programme Online has lined up experts from across the brass band world every Thursday for at least the next few months to lead webinars straight to your living rooms on subjects covering almost every conceivable element of banding.
The session will also be available on Facebook live on the BBE facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/brassbandsengland
BBE facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BrassBandsEngland/ for which users can sign up to for free.
