Reference for Oren Marshall
I have known Oren for 35 years. He is both in my experience and by reputation one of the greatest musicians, dancers and educators I have ever known. His skills, commitment, strength of character, integrity as a person, humility and breadth of musical experience is worthy of a book. Specifically Oren teaches brass instruments and percussion. He is renowned as a musician in the Orchestral, Classical, Contemporary, African, Latin, Experimental, Improvised and Jazz scenes. His ability as a teacher to inspire and give guidence, to help a student develop their practice and discipline is second to none.
Oren is a sensitive, inspiring and dedicated teacher able to get surprising results from everyone he encounters. Whether coaching brass ensembles, leading improvising groups or teaching one to one. He has inspired many of the leading brass musicians in the UK music scene today and as a player is probably the number one tuba player in Europe.
I have had the privilege of having worked with Oren as a part of team at Trinity Laban and witnessed the way he transformed students into professional level players in a staggeringly short period of time. He achieved this through technical focus, a radical approach to musicality, dancing, physical training and playing scales, which the students always enjoyed through learning to share his love for music.
Players of all levels of abilities learn about music and themselves whether post graduate or beginner.
