The Training band provides practice and performance opportunities for beginner and intermediate brass and percussion players of all ages (minimum age 7). Tuition is provided for beginner players, who soon progress to the Training Band itself. Several players have also moved on to joining the main band. Members of the main band run the training band, all of whom are experienced players and are DBS checked.
The band performs both on its own and alongside the main band at various events through the year.
The Training Band meets on Wednesdays during term time at St Matthew’s C.E. Primary School 6.45 -7.45pm. Instruments are available to borrow free of charge and membership costs just £15 per term.
