Walton’s Wizards Advanced Woodwind

Join the woodwind and low brass orchestra and come together to play beautiful music with a large group of enthusiastic musicians. You'll explore a wide range of glorious, mainly classical music, specially arranged and conducted by Mark Walton. 

Under Mark’s inspiring and good-humoured direction, you will gain new skills on your instrument, and build your performance confidence.

You’ll benefit from and enjoy working with other players of similar abilities and the exhilaration of performing in public concerts.

For blossoming musicians, there are more accessible parts that Mark adapts to people’s individual standard. However, you’ll need to be a relatively fluent music reader to get the most out of this unique and fun course.

This course is a morning course only.

Mark Walton

New Zealand-born Mark Walton is a highly popular figure in the Australian and New Zealand musical scene. He is widely known both as a big-hearted virtuoso clarinet and saxophone performer and an inspiring teacher.

For many years Mark held the position of Chair of Woodwind and then Chair of Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, but he is now on a mission to persuade everyone he meets to play a musical instrument.

Mark was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in 2005 for his contribution to Music Education in Australia.

Although Mark has performed in many parts of the world, recorded numerous solo albums, and written and compiled over 200 music publications, the highlight of his musical year is always Camp Creative.

Daryl Walton

Daryl Walton grew up in a musical household, so it was destined that eventually, he would follow in his parent’s footsteps.

Daryl runs school band programmes in several schools around Sydney and enjoys teaching a wide range of instruments. Although, as a teenager, the cello was Daryl’s instrument of choice, his go-to instrument is now the tenor saxophone.

Daryl has enjoyed many Camp Creatives over the years, but this will be his first wearing the much-coveted tutor’s badge.
