The main aim of the Training Band is to bring brass band music and brass playing to people who perhaps have never imagined playing a brass instrument before. It’s never too late to start learning and having no musical background is honestly no barrier to enjoying what is a fantastic and rewarding pastime.
The band contain players who have played before and are returning to music after perhaps a break due to work or family commitments. It also contains young and older people who, well just fancy having a go! People find being part of a band and playing in an ensemble is very rewarding regardless of experience or age.
The Training Band rehearse on a Wednesday Evening in the Avonbank Band room in Evesham, they have a full set of instruments. Tuition is free, music is free and free use of an instrument basically, what have people got to loose.
If you are a returning player or someone who would like to learn to play a brass instrument or you just would like to know more about how brass bands operate then The Avonbank Training band would be the place for you.
