How about going to London and getting some classes from London Brass? London Brass grew out of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, when PJ retired in 1986.... so they've got quite a reputation to uphold! The group are made up of London's top freelance players so they are all orchestral players 'by trade'. Having had a chance to play next to some of these guys in an orchestral setting, I can safely say that the players are awesome (Dave Stewart on bass trombone is a MONSTER). Not only that, they are fantastic people that will show you a great time around London.
The man to contact is David Purser: trombone and eupho player, and also the groups manager/PR man. london-brass(AT)easynet.co.uk is his address
