Our Beginners group meets on Sundays, 17.00 - 17.20 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.
Then from 17.20 - 18.00 (approx) the training band takes place. This is a great opportunity to start to play together as a group, while developing basic playing skills further than previously.
For both groups, 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 couple of years by local firm John Hornby Skewes. Some of the Training Band play their Odyssey Brass instruments which were funded by generous grants from the Foyle Foundation and the Golsoncott Foundation.
In 2018/2019 the training band was able to secure funding from the Ann Maguire Arts Education fund. Without this help the Training Band would not be able to give local people the chance to enjoy a new hobby and in providing us with players for the senior band in years to come.
For 2019/2020 the Training Band is supported by a generous grant from the D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust
