The BIG Double Reed Day will be held at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama on Sunday 19th November and we will take registrations until the evening of Saturday 18th November.

Please note that late applications are subject to an additioanl admin fee of £10, so the day costs £40 for students and £50 for adults. If you apply after the deadline we will do our best to accommodate you, but workshops will have limited availability.

You can turn up on the day and we will do our best to fit you in to workshops and classes, though the options will be very restricted. Please arrive at 9am for oboists and adults, 9.30am for student bassoonists, and 10am for junior oboists and bassoonists. If possible email bdrd@brandenburg.org.uk to warn us that you are coming. Payment is by cash or cheque (made payable to The BIG Double Reed Day).

To apply:

Students aged 18 and under click here.

Adults, including students aged 18 and over in higher education, click here.

A very small number of scholarships are available for those who would otherwise not be able to attend. We ask that you approach schools and music services in the first instance, and let us know if funding can't be obtained elsewhere. We ask for a teacher recommendation in support of the application, and a special application form, which can be obtained from bdrd@brandenburg.org.uk. If possible these applications should be received before the deadline.
