Tenor Horn Day

Join us on Sunday 19 April for an inspiring day of learning with Owen Farr, RNCM Tutor and one of the country’s leading tenor horn players.

Designed for enthusiastic players of ABRSM Grade 6 or equivalent, participants will benefit from masterclasses and tuition, covering areas such as performance, technique and ensemble work. You’ll also receive advice on preparing for auditions and performances before taking part in an informal concert for family and friends.

Exceptional Learning Opportunities

This day is distinctive in relation to the quality of coaching provided by players and teachers who’ve reached the highest levels of performance and education in the music industry. It’s designed to develop in each musician the importance of a whole mind and body approach to communicating music through their instrument.

Students who would benefit from this course may be:

  • a student preparing for conservatoire entrance auditions
  • a music education student planning a career in a performance setting or postgraduate study
  • a music enthusiast wishing to enhance their musical experience by working with the RNCM as part of a professional development experience

Learn From and Work With Highly Experienced Musicians

Owen Farr
RNCM Tutor in Tenor Horn
Owen began his musical career with the Pontypool Brass Band at the age of six. He soon joined Gwent County Youth Brass Band and the National Youth Brass Band of Wales, progressing to Principal Horn in both ensembles. Owen’s growing talent was recognised in 1995 when he became the British Open Junior Solo Champion and was appointed Solo Horn for the Tredegar Town Band at the age of 16. In 1998, after enrolling at the RNCM, Owen joined the Williams Fairey Band. Owen thrived in both these environments and was voted Player of the Year by his fellow players at the band. He enjoyed many successful solo performances with the band and was also a key member in their two National Finals victories.
