Our Training Band meets on Sundays, 17.00 – 18.00 in Garforth Methodist Church. This is an opportunity for anyone of any age who would like to learn a brass instrument or percussion from scratch. Instruments can be provided. Contact us for more information.
We have been very grateful for the guidance and assistance provided to the band over the past year by local firm John Hornby Skewes. Some of the Training Band play their Odyssey Brass and Woodwind instruments which were funded by generous grants from the Foyle Foundation and the Golsoncott Foundation.
In 2016 the Training Band was also subsidised by Leeds Inspired and for the next academic year it will be funded by the D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust. Without all this help the Training Band would not have got off the ground and we hope that it will be successful in both giving local people the chance to enjoy a new hobby and in providing us with players for the senior band in years to come.
