Preserving the future of the band by developing brass playing in the communtiy.
We offer free tuition and instrument (subject to availability) in a group setting to anyone wishing to develop a basic knowledge of music/brass playing, or take up playing again after a long sabbatical. The main objective being to feed the main band with players to compensate natural player turnover.
Sessions are held on Sundays at 15.45 - 16.45 at our band room within the Trimdon Station Community Centre, usually during term times. The sessions are led by Phil along with volunteer band members. We don't currently offer tuition on a 1 to 1 basis, so a basic knowledge of music theory and/or current external tutoring, at school or private tutor for example, is desirable. We do hope to develop our service in the near future to accept complete beginner players.
