“Buzz Newton's rendition of Philip Sparke's Harlequin is exquisite, he demonstrates sensitivity in the slow section and a devilish technique in the allegro finale.”
As one of the worlds top euphonium soloists Buzz has a growing reputation worldwide as a world class musician. Buzz has performed as soloist with some of the world's best brass bands including the Cory and Tredegar bands. As a soloist Buzz is recognised for his virtuosity, professionalism and ability to communicate musically with audiences.
Buzz has a flexible approach to his recitals; timings and repertoire are adjustable to work with the organiser's or promoter's event requirements. The ideal time for a recital is around one hour (with a short 5-10 minute interval) and can be as short as 15 minutes (mini recital). Accompaniment can be in many different forms and is not fixed (flexible to your requirements). Usually pieces are available in a range of options including brass/wind band, orchestra and piano.
Buzz can appear as a guest soloist with your band/orchestra or with piano as part of a concert, performing one or multiple solos.
Aspiring musicians, and their teachers, typically consider master classes to be one of the most effective means of musical development. The difference between individual or group tuition and a master class is generally the setup. In a master class, all the students (and often spectators) will watch and listen as one student or small ensemble plays through a piece or technical exercise. This is a great way of disseminating information to more people at one time than individual tuition. The class can vary between 30 minutes and up to two hours with the time divided between the students. In a one hour class the maximum number of students would be four, allowing 15 minutes for each student. The participants (typically intermediate or advanced) usually perform a single piece which they have prepared, and Buzz will give them advice, often including demonstrations of how to play certain passages, and how to approach common technical errors.
It is common for a master class to take place the day before or the day of a concert or recital, the latter being a means to obtain a larger audience.
