Lessons on the cornet

We normally start youngsters off at around 9 years of age. It is important that they have developed a full set of front teeth so that they can form a good “embouchure”.

The great thing about learning with the band is that it’s a very, very cheap way to learn an instrument.

For the first few months we make no charge at all and provide an instrument for you to take home, a weekly lesson, and all the appropriate sheet music. If you decide to carry on with the band then you would be liable for an annual subscription when these come up for renewal in January. This is around £30 for adults and half that for children.

Tuition is given by experienced players who will all have been through the normal police checks required by those working with young people. Parents are welcome to stay and watch lessons – or to join in with an instrument themselves if they feel like it.

Lessons are normally from 6.30pm to 7.30pm on a Monday.

Join as a Player.

If you already  a brass player you are welcome to join us for an evening to see how you like us! We play on Mondays from 7.30 to 9.30pm.


WE CURRENTLY HAVE VACANCIES IN MOST POSITIONS! If  you are keen to pick up your instrument again get in touch!
